Resource Teachers of Literacy

We take referrals from 29 schools in the local area and provide short, intensive, supplementary support to those learners with the highest literacy needs across the cluster. 

Our goal is for students to make and maintain progress and be able to work at or near the level of their peers so they can benefit from effective classroom teaching.

We work directly (one-on-one, or in small groups) or indirectly (by supporting and collaborating with the classroom teacher). Usually we utilise a combination of approaches. 

Please feel free to get in touch with either of us if you have any queries.
