The National Council for Special Education (NCSE), which is a separate independent statutory agency, is responsible through its network of local Special Educational Needs Organisers (SENOs), for planning and coordinating the provision of education and support services to children with special educational needs.

Each SENO works in an assigned local area with parents, schools, teachers, psychologists, health professionals and other staff who are involved in the provision of services in that area for children with special educational needs.

The exceptional teaching post sanctioned by the NCSE for the 2018/2019 school year in the school to which the Deputy refers is currently being reviewed by the Council and will outcome will be notified to the school.
