Your school has been using a software tool called Read&Write from Texthelp to help pupils who have literacy difficulties access exams. We’re pleased to say that this is now available for home use on any device your child uses. 

This means that the software they use in school can now also be used at home for Remote Learning, Homework and School work - in an effort by the school to support every child’s learning.   

Read&Write is a piece of software that works as a ‘toolbar’ in conjunction with familiar tools such as Word, Google Docs and web browsers. It offers a range of powerful support tools to help students gain confidence with reading, writing, studying and research:
