Dyslexia Hub

At Horbury Academy we have a Dyslexia Hub, offering a screening process which can identify dyslexic traits and indicators of Irlens Syndrome (visual stress).

As an Academy, we are unable to diagnose dyslexia, but where traits are identified through our screening process, we can offer advice in the form of Reasonable Adjustments for the learning environment and one to one and small group intervention where necessary.

Our referral process in easy, you can simply contact Mrs Farrell who coordinates our dyslexia provision at kfarrell@horbury.accordmat.org and request a screening for your son/daughter.

Referrals can be made by a parent/carer, a member of the Academy staff or students can self-refer by calling in to the Dyslexia Hub to speak to Mrs Farrell.

We also run a student dyslexia support drop–in session in our Dyslexia Hub, every Wednesday to Friday, 2.45pm to 3.45pm, to which students can come along and find out how we can assess if they have any dyslexic traits, or for advice on ways to help them to use their strengths to overcome any weaknesses.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
