A very Happy New Year !!!
We hope this blog will provide interesting insight into our super little school, offer ideas about how to learn and train in English language, how to enjoy doing so, and how to benefit from the wider opportunities in Exeter as a city and the South West region as a whole.
We believe Exeter academy is the ideal school in the ideal city in an idyllic part of the UK.
We will continue to provide information, ideas and help for you our readers in maximising your language study opportunities.
Winter sports and weddings !!!!
A new and exciting year is beginning. There are many global events taking place, eg. the Winter Olympics in South Korea, the football World Cup in Russia.
Visiting the Chief's stadium at Sandy Park is a memorable day out, which several of our students have experienced. You will see international rugby stars from all over the world and the wonderful action of the fast-paced game.
Royal Wedding bells !!
Of course, there will be a royal wedding in May, with Prince Harry marrying Meghan Markle.
This will be an opportunity to see us celebrating in truly British style, with street parties, the wide and varied costumes, culture and what we call 'Pomp' - a word which means all the special clothing, traditions and activities that happen during these big events, especially connected to our Royal family. We are very good at that which anyone of you who has seen the changing of the guard at BuckinghamPalace will testify.

Handling Complaints of Unlawful Discrimination and Harassment
Discrimination and harassment are legally complex matters for which there is no set way of dealing with every alleged instance. In some cases employees may resolves an issue by raising it with their line manager. If possible an employee should tell the person causing the harassment to stop that behaviour.
If an employee wishes to make a formal complaint he or she should use the Company’s grievance procedure which is set out in the Employee Handbook.
The Company will treat seriously all allegations of unlawful discrimination or harassment.
When an Employee is accused
Employees accused of unlawful discrimination or harassment will be investigated in accordance with the Company’s disciplinary policy. In the course of the investigation the employee will be given an opportunity to respond fully to the allegation and provide an explanation of his or her actions.
If the evidence suggests that no unlawful discrimination or harassment has occurred, the matter will come to an end.
If the Company concludes that the complaint is false or malicious the complainant may be subject to disciplinary action.
If, on the other hand, the Company finds evidence to suggest that the employee’s actions amount to unlawful discrimination or harassment he or she may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including summary dismissal for gross misconduct.
The Company will not tolerate unlawful discrimination or harassment of any kind in the working environment and will take positive action to prevent its occurrence.
