Following on from the initial training session, I have found Lexia has really benefitted my students. I have been using it both with students who are in school and those who are remote learning. The students have found it easy to access both in school and at home and this has helped us to deliver and develop the key literacy skills that the students need.

From my own perspective, I have found that some of my students who lack confidence in their own ability have really engaged with Lexia and I can visibly see the improvement both in their attitude and confidence, as well as their understanding of the core elements that Lexia works on.

I have found the data analysis section to be extremely useful as it has allowed me to identify which students are in need and how to help them to progress further. This is something that will be extremely useful in terms of planning the next steps and interventions for pupils across the school.

The next step for us is to fully embed Lexia as an intervention tool across the whole school which can be used to both enhance and further develop the students’ understanding of the basic literacy skills that they need to progress in all areas of learning.

I am extremely happy with the impact that Lexia has had so far and, once it is fully embedded across the school, have no doubt that this will lead to an improvement in overall literacy standards.
