“Some of our children haven’t passed the phonics checklist and need intervention.”

“Children in our school haven’t had a Dyslexia diagnosis but need intervention.”

“Planning takes up a great deal of time and we don’t have enough staff to deliver intervention.”

“We have some intervention programmes but our secondary school students find them immature.”


I’m Georgina, the author of CodeBreakers®. I understand some children don’t respond to reading and spelling interventions. Many schools experience collating resources from different intervention programs and this takes time. From our pilot study in schools, we know that planning and staffing of interventions can be challenging. Measuring progress is also a requirement for any intervention.

CodeBreakers® is a systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) program which uses multi-sensory techniques, it is cumulative and structured and mapped to Years 1-6 of the National Curriculum’s common exception words.

In 2021, the UK government announced the Early Reading Framework which advocates the use of a systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) approach.

CodeBreakers® was written with an aim of providing activities for dyslexia which are fun and a dyslexia specific intervention within school, which can be delivered by TAs, who are often at the forefront, supporting students of all ages, with learning difficulties. Baseline tests are included, which can not only identify specific gaps in a student’s knowledge but can also measure progress, alongside populating IEPs.  We aim to make efficient use of staff time by offering prepared lesson plans to further ensure teaching time is maximised. The clearly mapped pathway for student progression, ensures those overseeing intervention, understand how a student will progress through the program.

Students don’t need a Dyslexia diagnosis to use CodeBreakers®. In fact, we recommend it is used as an early intervention program.

CodeBreakers® has been written by me, a qualified dyslexia specialist, with years of teaching experience. I consider it is one of the best dyslexia programs, as it is based on best practice gathered over the years.

CodeBreakers® is designed to enable TA/LSA to deliver this intervention in your setting. Training is available if required.  The bite-sized activities allow sessions to be broken into small chunks of learning each day, working at the student’s own pace. The games provided, also make learning fun! Many programs rarely give opportunity for over learning and it’s this which makes learning ‘stick’, along with multi-sensory techniques.

The step-by-step program removes all the stress of looking for resources. All you need to do is print your workbook and deliver your sessions at a time suitable to the student’s timetable. Pause when you want to take a break and start again at any time.

A licence to purchase workbooks is available.

Baseline tests are available to establish a learner’s start point and informally measure progress (not standardised).

The main feedback from schools is regarding the development of student confidence and their willingness to engage.

I just wanted to say a great big thank you on behalf of all the children that you have helped support at our school!

These results are fantastic and I know that CodeBreakers has made a very real difference for our children and for our staff!

Thanks so much for all you have done to support us so far!


CodeBreakers really has made a huge impact here at our school and in such a short space of time! A real success story!

I am so pleased with the team, who really have embraced CodeBreakers and moved their teaching and learning accordingly! Thank you again for all your training and support with this!

We are very impressed with CodeBreakers and we are grateful to you for considering us as part of your pilot work!

We will all look forward to seeing the end of year results. CodeBreakers is a really valuable project with some exciting information produced.

And….most importantly…some successful children who are far more confident and happy in their approach to learning! Thank you once again!


This is a great resource.  I can see how support staff can easily use it.  It can be used in whole-class approach, small groups and sent home to parents for additional practice.  The multi-sensory approach gives phonics an extra dimension and the games can be great fun to use at home.
