The Drive for Literacy programme is a collaborative project between Driver Youth Trust and the academy network, Ark Schools. The majority of Ark pupils will learn to read and spell through the Read Write Inc Phonics programme, however, there are a proportion of pupils (nationally up to 10%) for whom reading and spelling accurately and fluently poses a problem – pupils with dyslexia. The Drive for Literacy programme ensures that dyslexia screening and identification of literacy difficulties takes place and is addressed as soon as possible

Our very own Torri Bridgett shares her story in the video below.
