Pastoral Support

Hi I’m Natalie and I am the Pastoral Support Advisor at Dysart.

I support the staff and pupils in school with various health and wellbeing advice for example; the development of manual handling guidelines and the pupil care plans.  I work closely with the school safeguarding team and social service to ensure that support is in place for our pupils and their families, for example attending specific meetings.  I can support you and your child to access external support through the completion of a SPA referral process.  A SPA referral leads to accessing family/social care support through the Moore Lane centre in order to potentially provide access to term time, weekend and holiday short break support.

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.
