The teachers were interested in and impressed by the exceptional inclusivity of Lyndhurst Primary School. Mr Hammill and Mr Sherin led a tour of the whole school to show off the fantastic work that happens here. Mr Sherin gave a presentation on how best to teach and support dyslexic learners in school. The visiting heads said they would try lots of our ideas when they returned to Denmark.
