The Team

The Dysart team is comprised of many individuals who work closely together for one core aim and one aim only – to do the absolute very best we can for our children and their families.

We have a group of creative, energetic and highly skilled teachers whose commitment and dedication is matched by our large and superb team of Learning Support Assistants who have great experience. Making a real difference over the lunchtime period is our team of Play Assistants and caterers who help to support the pupils to have a positive and enjoyable lunchtime. The day-to-day management of the school is ably supported by our admin, financial and site management team and we ensure quality relationships with school transport to ensure that the day starts and ends well for the children.

The school’s Senior Leadership Team is made up of the Principal, Deputy Principal, Assistant Principal, Head of Lower School (Key Stages 1 and 2), Head of Upper School (key stages 3, 4 and Post-16) and School Business Manager.

Working closely with us and alongside us are our multi-agency and therapy colleagues, volunteers and school governors. Underpinning all of this however is the value that we place on the relationships that we build with families, as it is through these relationships that we can be the complete team that we need to be to enable our children to thrive.

One parents told me that leaders see ‘beyond the diagnosis’ and have taken the time to really get to know her child.

Leaders at all levels play a role in ensuring that pupils have the very best opportunities in lessons.
