Overview

Shapwick's motto 'The same roads by different steps' rings true in everything throughout the school. Shapwick provides specialist dyslexic teaching in classes with a 8:1 pupil to teacher ratio. The environment is built for children with dyslexia – where pupils feel the same as everyone else.As a result pupils' self-esteem and confidence grows. They feel happy, fulfilled, confident and most importantly of all they are given the same opportunities as children who do not have dyslexia. Shapwick does not believe in specialist dyslexic units situated within a mainstream school where a child may feel different. If you have a poor working memory and weak phonological processing then you have those weaknesses in every lesson, activity and break, not just in a daily literacy lesson. Shapwick teachers understand the things that make a difference and their experience, results and feedback from parents, pupils and teachers demonstrates that Shapwick's unique formula works.The purpose of our school is to create an educational environment which repudiates dyslexia as a barrier to successful learning, so giving each pupil the confidence to realise his/her potential. In this context we aim to produce socially aware, socially acceptable and responsible young people who are fully prepared for further education, higher education or employment and thus take their place in society and have the skills to play a full role.
