Dysart Pupils Visit Kingston Hospital as Part of the 15 Steps Challenge

On Wednesday 25th September, Andrew (a pupil in Year 11) visited Kingston Hospital as part of the 15 Steps Challenge. Along with pupils from our friends at Bedelsford School, Andrew helped staff at the hospital review the Royal Eye Unit and the Dental / Oral Health Unit. More information about the 15 Steps Challenge can be found here.

Scott Bacon (Projects and Outreach officer at Kingston Healthwatch), who coordinated the visit said afterwards “Andrew and the students from Bedelsford were great. They visited the eye unit and the dental unit at Kingston hospital. They told us the things they liked and also what they would do differently to make teenagers feel welcome and more relaxed when they visit those units in the hospital”.

We are pleased to say that there will be more opportunities in the future for Dysart pupils to make an active contribution to shaping how well their local community needs the needs of young people with learning difficulties.

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.
