The curriculum: Calder House is a small, co-educational day school for pupils who, for various reasons, are out of step with their potential. The school offers a friendly, non-competitive environment in which children with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other specific learning/language difficulties are encouraged to enjoy school while developing the skills they need to successfully return to mainstream education. The average class size is eight with a staff to pupil ratio of one to four.
Name of Headteacher: Mrs Julie Delahay
A specialist approach: The staff offer a whole-school approach to specialist education – one which delivers a carefully structured programme of one-to-one support within a normal school environment.
A typical pupil:
- arrives with an unmeasurable reading age or one that is more than two years behind their chronological age • spends just over two years at Calder House
- leaves with a reading age appropriate for their chronological age or (in the case of one in three pupils) an adult reading age
- successfully returns to mainstream education
