TEC and Bird's Bush students perform a piece based on Dyslexia awareness

The school is promoting Dyslexia Awareness Week (5 to 11 October) throughout the week in assemblies.

Students from Tamworth Enterprise College have showcased a unique drama production to mark National Dyslexia Awareness Week (5 – 11 October).

Pupils from Tamworth Enterprise College teamed up with children from nearby Bird’s Bush Primary to perform the specially-commissioned work at TEC in a performance attended by the Mayor of Tamworth Councillor Maureen Gant and the Mayor’s Consort, Mr Kenneth Gant.

They also staged the drama at an event at Burton Albion Football Club.

The students, from Years 6, 7 and 8, had just three days to develop and rehearse the production which was led by TEC’s Head of Arts, Ami Radcliffe.

The schools worked in partnership with Entrust’s Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Service Team as part of an annual campaign to highlight dyslexia awareness.

Tamworth Enterprise College has been awarded Enhanced Dyslexia Friendly Status for its work in raising awareness of special educational needs.
