We are open with a phased return of pupils over the summer term keeping in line with risk assessments based on latest government guidelines.

As always, we are here to support all our families. If you have any queries please contact us on dysart-office@dysartschool.org and we will respond to you urgently.

Safeguarding

Dysart School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures and policies are in place to support pupils and staff at school and follow the guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2019. If a pupil or parent has a concern they should contact the school immediately.

COVID-19 SAFEGUARDING UPDATE: please see the Covid-19 annex to our safeguarding policy for details of how we continue to safeguard pupils through the coronavirus pandemic.

Child Protection, Adult Protection and Safeguarding Policy

The safety of our students is our number one priority.  As we all know, the risks in modern society are varied and constantly changing and we cannot remove these, so we all need to help educate children in ways to keep themselves safe.

As part of safeguarding the pupils of Dysart School we will ensure that no political view is promoted. If political views are discussed as part of the school curriculum we will ensure this is a balanced discussion.

Leaders demonstrate a high level of understanding and awareness of safeguarding concerns….The families that I spoke to reported that this is a safe place to be, and that staff at your school genuinely care about everyone in the school community.’

One parent of a non-verbal child said ‘I feel totally secure in the knowledge that he is safe here, even though he can’t talk.’
