Student Support Services
Here you will find people to help and advise you.
Coombe Dean provides additional support for students with a range of needs and circumstances, including those with SEND, those with emotional or mental health needs, those who are Young Carers, have family in the forces or are affected by bereavement. Below you can find a guide to the support available.
Support may be offered on a daily, weekly, short or long term basis. We try to respond appropriately whatever the need. In doing so, we also work with a larger range of services for young people e.g. Young Devon, The Zone, Youth Services, Social Services, Mental Health Services, Drug and Alcohol Abuse Services, Eating Disorders and other specialist support networks.
Students with Special Educational Needs are supported via the SENCo, Deputy SENCo, TAs and The Library – which is a dedicated space for students to work in during their non-curriculum time. Specialist counselling, EWO, Social Services and the DSL are available through our Inclusion team. The school operates a policy of inclusion in mainstream curriculum, but individual needs are met through My Coombe Dean plans, and adapted curriculum offers where appropriate.
