We are delighted to announce that Ofsted have graded Dysart School as Outstanding, following the inspection which took place on 12 &13th March this year.

Principal Leigh Edser said, “I am immensely proud of our entire school community. This outcome is not easy to achieve; it’s only with the compassion, determination and dedication of our amazing staff team coupled with such fantastic support from our families, and of course our inspiring pupils, that we are able to achieve this and all that we do daily.”

Here are some of the highlights from the report:

  • This is a caring and nurturing school. In the morning, pupils are greeted by enthusiastic school’s staff who are genuinely happy to see them.
  • Pupils are happy here.
  • The school is highly ambitious for all pupils.
  • The school wants pupils to be independent and confident.
  • Leaders are ambitions for pupils’ achievement.
  • The school draws upon the strong knowledge and expertise of staff to provide effective support for pupils with SEND.
  • Frequently, pupils achieve and surpass the outcomes set out in their education, health and care plans (EHC plans).
  • The school cares deeply about pupils’ personal, social and emotional development. They provide many avenues for pupils to share their views and explore their interests.
  • The school teaches pupils to listen to each other and treat other with kindness.
  • Teaching staff know pupils well. They are alert to possible situations that may lead to disruption and know what motivates pupils. As a result, lessons are calm and orderly.

The school continues to remain very much a forward-thinking school and promises to continue striving for the best for pupils, families, and staff. They look forward to the years ahead and relish the opportunities available to develop and evolve for the benefit of all.
