At Richard Hale School we do not carry out any diagnostic assessments (i.e we do no assess any student to see if they have dyslexia or not). If you would like to arrange a private dyslexia assessment for your child, we can recommend a local assessor.
Please can you let us know if you are planning to arrange a private diagnosis so that we can support you by passing on relevant information that we have about your child (Form 8 part 1 – see below)
The JCQ exam council states that privately commissioned assessment reports that have been ‘…carried out without prior consultation with the centre [school] and without the assessor having obtained Form 8 Part 1 [from the school SENCo] before the assessment cannot be used as evidence for access arrangements and cannot be used to process an application through Access Arrangements Online, such a report may contain useful information for the centre. (JCQ p78)
