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.
