Primary/secondary for dyslexic daughter

Postby Jessief » Fri Sep 11, 2020 11:55 am

Hello,

My Y3 daughter is currently in state school and we are looking into the option of moving her into private (ideally one which has a senior school to move through to after Y6). She has not been Officially diagnosed with dyslexia as too young but privately assessed and 99pc sure she is. She’s very arty, musical and sporty and while loves books and writing stories, although does struggle quite a bit with keeping up and quite weak on maths.
Looking for a nurturing environment with great facilities, Strong SEN, not huge focus on academia and friendly atmosphere with parents and pupils. I’ve heard good things about Streatham and Clapham Girls and Sydenham - any others in the Balham, Streatham areas and beyond? (Sydenham probably the furthest we would be willing to go). We are based in Tooting.
Any advice on this would be hugely appreciated.
Thanks!

Hi Jessie,

I am better known on this site as a Wandsworth Test tutor, but I am also a qualified dyslexia specialist teacher and assessor so I can help you with this. I’m also based in Tooting and have good knowledge of the local and not so local school options.

Do you want to call me for a chat? It’s probably easier and that way I can answer your questions directly.

Hi
Not a recommendation for a school as such but would really recommend getting in touch with the SEN Doula, she can has such much experience and advice in this area. https://www.facebook.com/SENDoulaParentCoachAndMentor/ she also has a free FB support group and offers 1;1 help too.
