School Captain
Hi, my name is Orla Chambers and I'm thrilled to have been elected School Captain for this year. I would like to thank all the pupils and teachers that voted for me, and I hope I can live up to expectations for this prestigious role.

A hugh congratulations to the Vice Captain Robert Kerr, and to all the House Officials for 2017-18. I'm looking forward to working with Robert, organising events such as the School Prom, and I'm positive we will make a great team.

I know that there will be many challenges ahead but with the help of Robert and a fantastic team of Officials - I'm sure we will have an exciting, rewarding and unforgettable year of school.

Vice Captain
Hello! My name is Robert Kerr and I am the School Vice-Captain. I cannot congratulate Orla Chambers enough for her election and I am delighted to have been chosen to work together with her over the next year.

We will endeavour to “aim for the highest” and represent Dalziel in the best way we can during the many school and local events, which I am hugely excited to help organise and participate in over the 2017/2018 session.

This will be a very busy year but I hope that Orla and I, alongside teachers and officials, will make it a fun and exciting one for us all.

DSUTB

As you may know, Dalziel has its very own ANTI-BULLYING campaign. We called the campaign DSUTB which stands for Dalziel Stands Up To Bullying.

We made the slogan “Record it, report it, don’t support it”. We think this is one of Dalziel’s biggest chances of stopping all bullying. We are dedicated to making Dalziel a positive and friendly environment where pupils can learn and achieve their full potential.

Over 30 pupils work hard behind the scenes to put together a campaign and lots of fun events. So far we have had the Kindness Week, pupil assemblies and Parent Association presentations with lots more to come!

Curriculum


Policy & Branding

We are the policy & branding group consisting of nine pupils Michael Bolat, Alice Smith, Ellie Magee, Josh Tobin, Carys Ferguson, Finn Lavery, Aaron Davies, Scott Ried and Colin Gass. We focus on logos, slogans and the policies of Dalziel Stands Up To Bullying.

Our slogan is "Record it, report it and don’t support".

Here is our Logo that we created:

We have presented our ideas and values to the Parent Association, who said that they loved it.

Plans for the Future:

  • Annual review of school anti-bullying policy
  • Presenting to the staff regarding the DSUTB campaign
  • Update local press on events
  • Update website

School Culture & Environment

Our group is responsible for keeping the environment in the school as positive and bully-free as possible. To do this, we have created posters to show helplines that people can go to if they are struggling in any way. We also have a bulletin board that we update to keep pupils updated on what the next event is and if DSUTB are going to be holding anything within the school.
We also assess the school environment to see if there are any areas or year groups in the school that may need some extra support against bullying, such as more members of staff at that particular area or holding assemblies to make pupils aware of the psychological dangers that bullying could cause and what the outcome may be if you are bullying someone.
To make pupils around the school aware of a committee in the school that stands up against bullying in all forms, we make sure to put our logo on every newsletter we send out and on every poster we make.

Supporting Pupils

Our group is responsible for making pupils feel supported and have some where to turn should they ever feel bullied. Our group also tries our hardest to make sure everyone can come to school and feel safe and welcomed. We have many different ways of rasing awareness to try and spread our DSUTB logo.

We have hosted assemblies to raise awareness of issues which might contribute to people feeling bullied such as LGBTI and cyber bullying. Pupils can get in contact with us using our email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Developing Young Workforce

Click the tabs at the right hand side to find out more about Developing the Young Workforce.

Content updated January 2017


The commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce was set up in Jan 2013 to consider:

  • How a high quality intermediate vocational education and training system works with the current Scottish higher education system to enhance economic growth with a skilled workforce.
  • How to achieve better connectivity and cooperation between education and the world of work.
  • How to achieve real partnerships between employers and education.

The commission published its final report:
Education Working For All, in June 2014.

Developing the Young Workforce – Scotland’s Youth Employment Strategy was published in Dec 2014.

The strategy and the implementation plan is the Government’s response to Education Working for All and sets out milestones over a seven-year period with the aim of improving outcomes for all young people by 2021.


Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) is providing our young people with the toolset and pathways either through vocational or further education so that they can achieve meaningful employment.

This is done through a variety of activities within Dalziel High School which build on key skills in particular within our strong STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) programme. Some of these activities are supported by our business partnerships.


Opportunities are available for our young people to develop key skills required for the world of work. This is delivered in:

  • Skills developed in STEM programme of activities
  • Skills developed through PSE (Personal & Social Education) and enterprise programme
  • Vocational courses pathways
  • Work Experience programme
  • Careers events at schools
  • Key skills and qualification requirements for employment embedded within lessons across the curriculum. Pilot programme currently underway in Science

Key skills that Dalziel High School focus on through curriculum and activities are:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Problem Solving
  • Thinking
  • Working with Others
  • ICT
  • Leadership
  • Creativity
  • Enterprise
  • Employability

At Dalziel High School we have a created strong partnerships with business. We have a strong partnership with global energy company, Amec Foster Wheeler.

The partnership is now in its 4th year and the main purpose of the partnership was to enhance knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and encourage young people to pursue employment using these skills through the vocational and higher education routes. This aligns with the DYW requirements.

Amec Foster Wheeler supports the STEM activities within the school in addition to mentoring the Nat 4 engineering and Foundation Apprenticeship engineering pupils, are offered paid work placements in their facility in Aberdeen.

Dalziel High School have recently established a strong link with finance company Morgan Stanley. They are providing work experience placements, providing staff in service in relation to career opportunities and CV development and preparation.


At Dalziel High School we offer a variety of vocational courses:

  • Childcare at Cardonald College
  • Nat 4 Engineering – This is provided at New College Lanarkshire on every Wednesday afternoon and is offered to S4 pupils. The 2 year course has been condensed into a 1 year course and our business partner, Amec Foster Wheeler mentor and support the pupils in addition to supply the PPE necessary. This course is now in its 3rd year of delivery and pupils who have obtained this qualification have gone on to achieve success in Arkwright Scholarships, Foundation Apprenticeships.
  • Foundation Apprenticeship in Engineering – There are currently 4 pupils (S6) who are now in their second year of a Foundation Apprenticeship at EKGTA in East Kilbride. On completion the pupils will gain access to the 2nd year of a Modern Apprenticeship on leaving school.

Scott Simpson (S6) Pupil Says:

Thanks to the schools STEM programme and business partnership with Amec Foster Wheeler I have been given the opportunity to do something I never imagined I could because of my dyslexia.
As a consequence of this I now know that I have a passion for engineering and this is the path I want to take when I leave school.
Doing the Foundation Apprenticeship course in Engineering has opened up new pathways for my career!
