Lower School Residential A Huge Success

Two groups of pupils from our Lower School department visited Butlins during the week beginning 14th October for a residential visit. The first group visited from Monday to Wednesday, with the second group visiting from Wednesday to Friday.

Pupils took part in a range of different activities including swimming, bowling, and the fun-fair rides. Everyone (pupils and staff) had a great time. Residential visits give pupils an opportunity to further develop their independence skills in a broad range of ‘real-life’ contexts, as well as promoting greater resilience to challenge. As a result, staff at Dysart work exceptionally hard to ensure that all pupils from KS2 and up are offered at least one residential visit each academic year.

Our thanks to all members of staff who were involved in supporting the visit to ensure that it was such a success. Residentials do take a significant physical toll on staff and we are very fortunate at Dysart to have such a hard-working staff team, who are committed to the very best outcomes for pupils.


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.
