Student Support

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.

The expertise of the multi-disciplinary team has been effectively shared with staff so that they can better support pupils learning.

Pupils make exceptional progress in English and mathematics because staff work alongside leaders, parents and therapists to agree goals.

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.
