Dysart School Curriculum

The following pages in this Curriculum area explain our Curriculum approach.

The school is highly ambitious for all pupils. The school organises different curriculum pathways tailored to pupils needs which leads to appropriate and ambitious end points. This includes in the sixth form where students achieve accredited functional skills qualifications. The school’s curriculum pathways include a broad range of subjects in line with the national curriculum and early years foundation stage. The school thinks carefully about the most important knowledge and skills that they want pupils to learn. Content is broken down into small steps so that pupils build knowledge cumulatively over time.
