Our Educational Progress Department provides specialist education for pupils in Year 9, right through until Sixth Form, in line with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2001).

Led by Department Head, Kate Walters, pupils requiring short or long term support during their Taunton School education can benefit from the Educational Progress Department at any point during the school year.

A supportive, expert team of teachers is available to identify and provide the relevant assistance to meet pupils’ individual educational needs and ensure their full potential is met across the curriculum. The focus is on developing learning strategies, study skills, revision and examination techniques and building confidence, self-esteem and improving grades.

Whether it’s one to one teaching for literacy or numeracy skills, or assistance with specific difficulties, senior students have all the support they need to excel in their chosen subjects.

We’ll continuously assess, screen and record your child’s progress to make sure you’re fully informed of how they are getting on.

And when it comes to assessment for exam access arrangements, Kate Walters is registered with the British Psychological Society and is qualified to assess your child’s eligibility for support in exams. We’re also in a position to organise Educational Psychologist assessments with a local Educational Psychologist if necessary.
