Dysart School’s aim is to support inclusion and quality first learning experiences for students with special educational needs in and out of school. As a school we are committed to sharing our expertise and knowledge in partnership with our mainstream colleagues, parents and other professionals in order to promote educational excellence and positive life experiences for all learners.
Kara has been working at Dysart school for 14 years teaching across all key stages and has previously led on the school’s assessment. Aswell as doing the Outreach Support she now leads the Family Support Provision at Dysart. Kara enjoys building deeper relationships with schools and families across the borough, ensuring that learning from each other and working collaboratively is at the heart of what she does both with Outreach and Family Support.
The behavior support team at Dysart school is led by Erin Barton. Erin works closely with staff to ensure an ongoing, holistic approach to supporting Dysart pupils. She supports staff to work together more effectively through what they say and do. Erin also works with pupils across the school to provide positive behaviour support and behaviour support plans if needed. At Dysart we recognise that all behaviour is a form of communication and it is Erin’s role to put her detective hat on and discover what is behind the behaviours of an individual pupil. She can then figure out what strategies to put in place in support to enable Dysart pupils to thrive.
Erin, also supports families of our pupils. This can be in the form of a phone call, home visit or making a resource that can be used by families to mirror best practice and bridge the gap between home and school.
Pastoral support at Dysart is led by Natalie Aylan. Natalie has a wealth of experience and expertise. Her role is to ensure that every child is safe, happy, involved and able perform to their potential when at school.
