Exeter School is committed to providing support for those of its pupils with specific learning difficulties or special educational needs. Our learning support coordinator for Years 10 and 11 in the senior school and sixth form pupils is Mrs Reeves. She coordinates provision for pupils with individual needs and is in regular contact with parents and our pastoral and academic staff, as well as outside agencies.
Learning support for our younger years in the senior school is the responsibility of Mrs Coogan who also works with our pupils in the junior school, ensuring they have a smooth transition to the senior school.
The learning support coordinators also liaises directly with the examinations office to ensure that access arrangements such as extra time are in place for public examinations as appropriate.
In addition to this specialist support, Exeter School requires all staff to continue to develop their awareness and understanding of special educational needs. Individual strategy sheets are produced by the learning support coordinator for all pupils on our learning support register. These provide background information, strengths, areas of need and strategies for supporting specific needs.
