Junior School Learning Support

We really get to know each and every child here at Exeter Junior school. This means getting a sense of their diverse learning preferences and needs. We consider and respect the learning needs of all our pupils, tailoring lessons accordingly.

Having the right systems in place makes all the difference. Pupils with identified learning needs can be supported through small group work, with termly reports to parents on progress. We generally do not offer one to one support at Exeter Junior School.

Individual assessments are completed to identify specific needs and referrals made to outside agencies where a higher level of concern is identified.

All new entrants to junior school are screened for dyslexia using an online screening tool and interventions are available to support learning in English and maths.

Social, emotional and behavioural development is supported through the use of the Thrive programme, which supports pupils who have been identified with social, emotional or behavioural needs.
