At Dysart we benefit from the skill and expertise of a number of multi-agency colleagues. These include Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, School Nurse and Educational Psychology. These professionals are employed by Achieving for Children (AfC) and Your Healthcare, in addition to which we employ our own Music Therapist. The multi-agency team works closely with the school in providing a holistic approach to ensure therapy is embedded throughout the curriculum and beyond.
The school also works closely with AfC’s Social Care Team, Disabled Children’s Team and Adult Learning Disability Services. These high quality relationships support integrated working that benefit our children and their families.
“Excellent links with social services and other agencies support pupils’ safety and well-being extremely well.” Ofsted 2015
Staff speak of the inclusive culture of the school and the excellent teamwork between teachers, therapists, care staff and teaching assistants. They feel well supported in their work due to regular professional development and the culture leaders have established that encourages staff to seek help or ask questions. Ofsted 2015
