Curriculum

Dysart is a school for pupils aged 4-19 who have a range of severe and complex learning disabilities. At Dysart we strive to provide a curriculum that is flexible, exciting and personalised that fits each and every one of our pupils rather than making our pupils fit the curriculum.

Our Curriculum consists of 3 curricula pathways which recognise that our pupils with severe and profound learning difficulties face learning challenges which demands us to provide personalised and varied approaches to our teaching and to prepare them for life after Dysart.

We have a rolling plan in place, which supports a balance of stimulating contexts for learning through different learning experiences, themes and subjects.

The recently introduced ‘Rainbow’ curriculum is highly responsive to pupils individual needs….There is a strong focus on preparing all of your pupils for the move towards adulthood. Another important element of your curriculum is helping every pupil leave with a voice that can be heard…Parents feel it is really tailored to meet the needs of their own child.
