Every member of our community should feel a distinct sense of belonging. To this end, we strive to create an environment that enables everyone to truly flourish. To be an Exonian means to be celebrated as a unique individual, as well as being part of a welcoming and inclusive community. Whether a pupil or a parent, a staff member or a member of the wider community, everyone at Exeter School should feel empowered to be themselves and to have their voice heard.
EDI At Exeter School
As a school we uphold the rights of all protected groups outlined by the Equality Act 2010 (background, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, belief, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or socioeconomic status), as well as those who are neurodiverse, speak English as an additional language, or have any other learning support needs. We are both proactive and reflective in the support we offer, which includes but is not limited to:
- Providing carefully considered pastoral support for pupils with protected characteristics
- Tackling discriminatory behaviour with consistency
- Raising awareness of the impact of prejudice and discrimination within school and how we can all play our part in reducing this, both pupils and staff
- Reviewing the curriculum and pastoral programme to ensure those with protected characteristics are represented and celebrated
- Recognising the importance of celebrating Exeter School’s past through connecting with our alumni, as well as looking to the future as part of our commitment to continuous improvement
