Petition launched to reinstate allowances regarding spelling for pupils with dyslexia (opens in new tab/window)

 

15 March 2016

A petition has been launched to reinstate allowances regarding spelling for pupils with dyslexia and the British Dyslexia Association welcome and encourage all of our members and supporters to sign it.

 

Thousands of dyslexic children will be marked as failures under the government's controversial new primary writing assessments. Pupils will be expected to spell almost 200 words on government wordlists if they are to reach the "expected standard" for writing at the end of Year 6.

 

No allowance will be made for the tens of thousands of pupils with dyslexia.
