Our students love it, there has been a truly positive response to it, so overwhelming in fact we have had to encourage some children to slow down - that is unheard of!!!!

We decided to purchase Lexia as it is a personalised reading program that the children can access at home and in school, it goes beyond simple comprehension and is developing all aspects of reading. It also means we can have an accurate picture of pupil engagement in reading at home.

Lexia has a rounded approach to reading – comprehension and skills including vocabulary development. The text’s presentation and ‘sparkly additions’ make it a truly child-friendly reading resource.

We’ve noticed changes to our students’ motivation to succeed in literacy and how are they responding to their own progression through the Lexia levels. Our students love it, there has been a truly positive response to it, so overwhelming in fact we have had to encourage some children to slow down! –  that is unheard of!!!!

Using the data dashboard makes monitoring progress really easy across the whole school, year groups, classes or at an individual level. I particularly like usage as this is a way of acknowledging effort too (this is often forgotten to be celebrated in many schools as it is difficult to truly measure)

Lexia is successful for us as we have all embraced it fully, like all good resources it is the implementation and the constant drive and push that makes them work.
