The budget allocation is agreed between our school and the Local Authority at the beginning of each financial year. This is used to support children and young people with SEND in a wide variety of ways. A range of materials are provided by the school in order to assist in drawing up a programme for a child with SEND needs. These resources are distributed around the school. We encourage their efficient and effective use by raising awareness of availability of materials and matching resource to need. This is monitored each term by the SENDCo and the Governing Body.
If a child has complex special educational needs, we may also apply to the Local Authority for additional top-up funding. This is done in communication with parents and carers. Pupils with EHCPs may also have funding attached to this to support their needs and provision.
