Drive for Literacy

Drive for Literacy

Building strong foundations in English and maths is key to ensuring children can unlock the rest of the curriculum. However, children who have dyslexia can find it harder to secure those foundations, particularly in English.

The Drive for Literacy programme, run jointly by ARK Schools and the Driver Youth Trust, helps us to identify and support pupils who need extra help.

Ark Blacklands works with the Driver Youth Trust to screen all our Year 1 pupils to identify those who may be at risk of Dyslexia so that the right support is available.
