A COLLEGE near Ludlow has been registered for the teaching of dyslexic students.

This follows an inspection of Bedstone College by The Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic Pupils.

Learning Support at Bedstone is a key part of teaching says the college.

Many students will need extra support during their time at Bedstone.

Those students who require this benefit from Individual Education Plans produced by Jamie Lowe, Head of Learning Support at Bedstone and winner of the SENCO of the year 2016 award at the Dyslexia awards.

He ensures that all students have an individual plan and that it is circulated to all staff, showing every teacher how they can individualise their teaching for the student so that they have the best possible opportunities in every lesson.

The main focus throughout is maintaining and building self-esteem and confidence as a learner. At Bedstone there are 250 specialist books in the library that are dyslexia friendly.

There is a range of structured cumulative, multi-sensory programmes that are used to help younger children.
