We were extremely excited to welcome students to our new Apollo 2 satellite provision at the beginning of this term and we look forward to updating you in the newsletter shortly.

EYFS

‘Discover & Explore’

Reception aged pupils at Dysart follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) ‘Development matters’ curriculum. This is a developmental and play based curriculum.  At Dysart we recognised that play needs to underpin pupils learning and in turn builds the foundations for our learners’ development.

Through play, learners have the opportunity to develop communication skills, develop their imagination, physical, cognitive and emotional strength. For our EYFS learners, high quality planned experiences for play opportunities is an important way for the practitioners to create an environment that is both enjoyable, personalised to needs and challenging.  These play experiences are planned for both indoors and outdoors to support an environment that allows children to transfer learning and skills taught in the classroom to the outdoor environment.

The key focus during this time is on teaching pupil’s routine and easing them into the idea of learning in a structured environment.

In Year 1, pupils are bridging the skills from the EYFS curriculum into a more formalised curriculum. Pupils are assessed by a multi-disciplinary team to establish which learning pathway they will follow beyond Year 1.

You are rightly proud of your work around pupil wellbeing, and ensuring pupils are ready for learning.  This has enabled you to establish a calm and purposeful learning environment for pupils with considerable needs.
