Pupil Safeguarding Ambassadors Elected

On Wednesday 13th March, the Dysart school council met to vote for our pupil safeguarding ambassador. All of the schools across OHCAT, the multi-academy trust that we are part of, are appointing pupil safeguarding ambassadors. These are pupils who will work with the staff safeguarding team to find meaningful ways to support other pupils to learn about how they can keep themselves safe, both in school and in the community.

Our school council met and discussed what they would like to see in a pupil safeguarding ambassador, and then voted for their preferred candidate. The vote was a tie so we have appointed two pupils to be joint pupil safeguarding ambassadors: Charlie and Andrew.

Charlie and Andrew will be meeting with Emmet (Vice Principal and Designated Safeguarding Lead) in the near future to look at how they can support the other pupils at Dysart with staying safe. We will be creating a dedicated page on the school website to highlight updates in the work that they do.

Eden, Dysart’s lead for Pupil Voice, said afterwards: “Having a vote to decide who will be our pupil safeguarding ambassador helps to teach our pupils about democracy and democratic processes. It is also a great opportunity for Andrew and Charlie to help keep their friends safe. We are all really excited about the work they will be doing”.


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.
