Services for Schools

Intervention Services for Schools

A range of intervention services for young people and schools in Devon.

Running Deer is a DfE registered independent school (registration number: 878/6067) working with young people with Special Educational Needs including social, emotional and specific learning difficulties.

We work closely with professionals, parents and carers to ensure that their additional needs are addressed through one, or a combination of our high support intervention services. Support is individually tailored to the needs of the young person.

We place a strong focus on the therapeutic pathway; enabling them to re-engage in education, whilst at the same time addressing their social, emotional and/or behavioural needs.

Intervention Services we provide include:
