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.
The School budget allocation includes an amount to support those pupils with special educational needs. The funding St Wilfrid’s Primary School receives, is vital to provide the educational support for pupils with SEN. This funding is prioritised to tailor make learning packages to support and ensure progress is continually made by all SEN Learners.
At St Wilfrid’s Primary School, our notional SEN budget amounts to £124,367.61 with top-up funding equating to £1862.
This is used to support children and young people with SEND by:
- Involving parents in decisions about how their child’s needs are met.
- Costed provision maps are created with detailed evidence of supporting resources provided in school.
- The school builds a portfolio of the progress each child makes.
- Additional “top up” funding can be applied for from the Local Authority if required.
- Detailed assessments and target tracking ensure that all learners make progress.
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:
