The Local Authority (LA) provides the school with a budget towards meeting pupils’ SEND. The school is also provided with additional funding through Pupil Premium, which was introduced by the Government in April 2011 to further support children’s achievement. The school also usually needs to allocate additional funding from the main school budget to SEND.
The school spends this money on:
- SENCO non contact time
- Teaching assistant/HLTA salaries
- Training for all teachers and teaching assistants so they can meet pupil’s needs more effectively
- Smaller group interventions
- The cost of referrals
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
