Online Learning Resource – Secondary
IDL is an intervention programme used by the Literacy department at Belmont School. It can be accessed at home, if pupils have the internet available to them.
The programme is seeing some great progress with improved reading and spelling skills amongst pupils who complete lessons regularly.
We would encourage all pupils to access IDL for 10/15 minutes daily to see the best outcome and would greatly appreciate parents/carers support with implementing this.
To access IDL simply login to www.idlsgroup.com
Individual pupils know their personal username and password.
If you have any problems with the login details or would like some further information please do not hesitate to contact the school.
