Students

At Dysart School we want all of our pupils to feel a part of both the school and the wider community. We want you to access all the opportunities that are available to you and to work hard to achieve your aims and ambitions.

We would like all our pupils to:

  • Be healthy
  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy and achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic wellbeing

 

Non-verbal pupils develop their independence because there is universal use of symbol support to help them to understand and communicate.  They are also taught to express feelings. Where pupils are experiencing emotional difficulties, they are supported through drama, music and art lessons to manage their emotions.  This results in reduced levels of anxiety among those with the most complex needs.

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.
