Dysart Present Rainbow Curriculum at Hirstwood Conference

On Friday 23rd November, senior leaders from Dysart delivered a presentation on the Rainbow Curriculum at the ‘Curriculum Conundrum’ conference organised by Richard Hirstwood in London. Richard has worked extensively with Dysart over the past few years, supporting the development of our curriculum as well as providing staff with valuable CPD and was keen for us to share with colleagues from other schools the journey that led to its creation.

Jo Williams (Assistant Principal); Dani Ayres (Head of Upper School); Steph Cruse (Head of Lower School); and Kara Walters (Assessment lead) delivered a 45-minute presentation that was very well received by all in attendance. Richard said afterwards, “The work you are doing at Dysart is a great example to other schools and management teams so keep going”.

 

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.
