When pupils begin their academic journey at Repton they are ‘screened’ early in their first term. For those with recognised difficulties, this is unlikely to offer any additional information but it can give an indication of progress since previous assessments.
For pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, the Personalised Learning department offer assessments throughout an individual’s journey with the intention to establish a learning profile. The learning profile is a valuable piece of information for the pupil and members of staff as it highlights both their strengths and obstacles whilst engaging with the educational expectations.
The Personalised Learning team will explain the profile to the pupil themselves and equip them with strategies to overcome the obstacles which are presented to them. These assessments are conducted in line with the regulations for reasonable adjustments for external exams.
Please do not hesitate to make contact should you wish to discuss additional support. Academic and social demands can be daunting for all pupils and are much more easily and happily managed with support.
