SEND - Allocating Resources

We ensure that all students with special educational needs are provided for/ to the best of the school’s ability with the funds available.

We have a team of teaching assistants and part of their responsibility is to deliver programmes designed to meet individual or groups of student's needs.
The budget is allocated on a need(s) basis. The students who have the most complex needs are given the most support and available resources. The budget is allocated according to:

  • Devolved SEN funding from the Local Authority with additional top-up funding allocated to individual students with an EHC Plan or statement
  • Governor / Principal guidelines
  • Governor agreement through the finance committee

Our decision-making process when matching support to need is:

  • Formal assessment / testing process
  • Information provided from primary feeder schools
  • Cost-effectiveness of support
  • Referrals from professionals or recommendations
