“How many young people in the past 2 years, of high school age, have been given an assessment by an Educational Psychologist.

1. Who are full time students in high school? 861

2. Who are home schooled – 83

What is the average annual expenditure, by Devon County Council Education Department per child?

3. Who are full time students in high school? £3,084 is the average for all Devon Secondary schools.

4. Who are home schooled? Personalised budgets are provided for some students who are unable to attend school but this is not because they are electively home educated.  This figure is, therefore, not held.

5. What is the average period of time it takes to have an SEN assessment made? An average of 36 weeks taken from data for 2018/19 academic year.
