Apollo leads the way

The success of Apollo 1 & 2 has been recognised and shared by the National Association for Special Education Needs in their monthly magazine. The special school-led satellite model of education providing pathways for children with SEND, is being pioneered by Dysart School with the successful opening of Apollo 1 in 2019 and Apollo 2 this term.

In an article ‘Satellite model of education – Thinking differently at Dysart School’  published in the September 2021 edition of NASEN Connect Magazine, the Principal of Dysart School, Leigh Edser writes:

“The children have astounded me, both educationally and socially; they have flourished and grown so much in a short space of time. They have developed skills in various areas and have benefitted from experiencing opportunities alongside their mainstream peers, but with the help of a safe, secure environment where they can retreat to when things become more difficult or overwhelming.”
