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 Nettlesworth Primary School, our notional SEND budget amounts to £28,017.63p for the academic year September 2016 to July 2017.
This is used to support children and young people with SEND by:
The school funding formula is generated to include financial provision to specifically support pupils individual special needs. This funding is prioritised to tailor make learning to ensure small steps of progress are continually made by all SEND learners.
Our notional budget for SEND has been allocated to providing adults who can undertake specific 1:1 and small group support in areas such as intensive interventions, improving social and communication skills, phonics support and any additional academic or pastoral support. This support always takes place with the full involvement of both children and parents. Elements of this funding is also used for the provision of appropriate resources which children with additional learning needs may find beneficial
At Nettlesworth 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 ’top-up’ 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 within our school.
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:
