Senior School Learning Support

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.

Possible loss of functionality to our portals

Please note that there is a widespread technical issue with CrowdStrike’s software which has led to a global outage affecting various sectors, including planes, railways, and iSAMS servers and communications. This may mean that parents of the school might not be able to use their parent portal currently and some other parts of our site might not work as well as they normally do.

We urge you to take a well-earned break and check back in on Monday when hopefully things will be working again.
