Progress and Attainment

Due to the nature of their needs, pupils at Dysart do not take formal exams. Progress is monitored through EHCP outcomes and through termly meetings with families: at the beginning of each term, every teacher meets with each pupil’s family to discuss their progress and agree outcomes for them for the coming term. These curriculum outcomes are usually linked to the pupil’s long-term EHCP outcomes.

Pupils in KS5 are usually entered for Entry Level Awards in areas that are of relevance to their profile of need. In 2018-2019, 21 students in the 14-19 Provision secured an Entry Level 1 Award in Personal Progress; 14 students secured an Entry Level 1 Award in Independent Living – Leisure Activities and 7 students secured this award at Entry 2. In 2020-2021, 21 students secured an Entry Level 1 Award in Personal Progress; 14 students secured an Entry Level 1 Award in Independent Living and 5 students secured this award at Entry 2. More detailed information can be found in the report below.
