The budget allocation is agreed between our school and the Local Authority at the beginning of each financial year. Detail of how this money is used to support children and young people with SEND is shown below. This is monitored each term by the Governing Body.
At St Michael’s RC Primary School, our notional SEN budget amounts to £20,431. (2015-2016)
This is used to support children and young people with SEND by:
- Funding prioritised to tailor make learning to ensure small steps of progress are continually made by all SEN learners.
- This Year, the majority of this money will be spent on experienced Learning Support Assistants who work with children on a one to one basis, within class and as part of small group interventions.
- The small amount of remaining money will be spent on resources to aid the learning of children with SEND such as books, computer software and motor skills equipment.
If a child has complex special educational needs, we could also receive additional funding from the Local Authority to meet the agreed outcomes.
A Costed Provision Map will be developed in liaison with the child, young person, parent or carer. An example of a costed provision map can be found here:
At St Michael’s Primary School, for those pupils with High Needs, Costed Provision Maps are created with detailed evidence of supporting resources provided in school. This builds a portfolio of the progress each child makes and additional funding and financial support can be applied for from the Local Authority.
Detailed assessments and target tracking ensure that all learners achieve and make progress at St Michael’s Primary School.
