The North Yorkshire Dyslexia Quality Mark has been reviewed and this highly valued accreditation has been redesigned to make it simpler for schools to follow. All previous documentation is now no longer in use and updated versions of the documents below will be released in response to user feedback.

This specialist award is an additional quality mark that builds on the inclusive practice celebrated by the North Yorkshire Inclusion Quality Mark. The impacts of making schools dyslexia or SpLD friendly are huge for children and families.

Please download the relevant documents below and then watch this online presentation, which explains the whole process. You will need to make sure your speakers are on –
