Partnerships

At Dysart we believe that nothing can be achieved individually as effectively as it can in partnership. The teamwork ethic is integral to everything that we do and the knowledge, skills, experiences and specialisms amongst the full range of our partners enables us to work positively towards the vision that we have created for the school.

At Dysart we also work with a number of community facilities, both to enhance the provision that we offer to our pupils and also to raise and promote disability awareness. Partnership links include: a range of schools and colleges, family support and short-break/respite services (such as EnhanceAble and Yorda Adventures), local businesses, RDA horse riding stables and other Kingston supported organisations, such as the Rose Theatre.

We also have a small number of volunteers who dedicate their own time to supporting the children and young people here, for which we are immensely grateful. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the school via the school office on dysart-office@dysartschool.org

Pupils across the school are given many and varied opportunities for social and cultural development, such as through horse-riding lessons and visits out. Leaders also make use of current affairs, such as the general election, when pupils elected their own school council, and the Rugby World Cup, when they looked at other countries and sport.

You are rightly proud of your work around pupil wellbeing, and ensuring pupils are ready for learning.  This has enabled you to establish a calm and purposeful learning environment for pupils with considerable needs.
