Lessons at Nunnykirk
All classes are small with a maximum of eight pupils, thus enabling a high level of individual help. Where necessary, more intensive tuition on a one-to-one basis is arranged.
All teaching staff are fully qualified and have many years experience in this particular field of education. In addition, our SENCO organises a highly qualified team of specialists who together develop learning strategies, monitor and assess pupils’ progress and produce reports for parents and LEAs.
All children follow the National Curriculum. Computers are available in all classrooms enabling the delivery of Information Technology in a cross-curricular manner as well as being used extensively by the English department.

Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty (SpLD), often inherited and is a lifelong condition. Dyslexia is much more than the traditional definition of ‘difficulty with words’ or ‘word blindness’.
Nunnykirk School is very happy to offer a taster day for any child with dyslexia whose parents are considering sending them to the school.
