Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Special Education Needs

Exeter school has a fully qualified Learning Support Coordinator who works to assess and to assist those pupils with Special Educational Needs. Pupils are referred to Learning Support for assessment on entry to the school if SEN is already known or by teaching members of staff when difficulties are noted in lessons. The Learning Support Coordinator will then assess the pupil. The resulting support varies according to need but strategies include, circulation to staff of summary details and strategies to help the pupil learn in class, monitoring through Learning Support and the pastoral system and withdrawal from lessons for one-to-one coaching.
