Michael Gove and The Importance of Teaching

blog home

When announcing the schools White Paper, The Importance of Teaching, the Education Secretary Michael Gove´s statement placed the focus firmly onto traditional school values.




No doubt there will be many who agree and probably more who will disagree with Mr. Gove´s statement and the contents of the White paper. Whatever the outcome, let´s not forget the one-in-ten pupils who have a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia.

At secondary school one of the main ways in which dyslexia manifests itself is in poor spelling. Many of these pupils are extremely able in other areas and need to have the right sort of support in school so that they are able to show their abilities in written exams.

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
