Coloured Overlays 


If your child normally needs a coloured overlay to read in school and at home then please read below. As most of the work is now online, this will help your child have a better reading experience. 


Colour Overlay’ is a screen masking tool that adds a colour tint to your laptop/desktop screen to create a better reading experience. For some people reading black text on a white background can be challenging so using screen masking tools may help to create not only a better but longer reading experience. 


Please follow the instructions in the document below to add the coloured overlay to your browser- remember that it needs to be Chrome!
