CLARO SOFTWARE - FREE TRIAL UNTIL THE END OF JUNE FOR PARENTS OF CHILDREN WITH DYSLEXIA OR DYSLEXIC TENDENCIES 6/5/20
Milton Hall have managed to secure a free trial until end of June (it may work until the end of July but Claro couldn't confirm at this stage) for Claro software. If you are interested in downloading and trialling, please email email@example.com and we will send you the download and licence instructions. Mrs Vangalis Stobbs saw it in action yesterday on a webinar and it could be really useful to support your child with reading and writing if they struggle with these due to possible dyslexic tendencies.
During the school closure period, if parents of children with SEND wish to contact either of the SENCOs they may do so on these numbers:
Mrs Fisher. 07517515533 Monday to Wednesday
Mrs Vangalis Stobbs 07707027588 Monday to Friday
The phones will be operational between 8:45am and 3:45pm. You may also use it as a direct text number but please leave your name and your child's name.
