The school's Delegated SEN Funding ensures provision to provide appropriate support for pupils with Special Educational Needs.  We aim to support pupils through early intervention.Funding is used to facilitate:  
  • Quality First teaching
  • Whole school inclusive practice
  • SENDCO role and the wider Inclusion team
  • Parent Liaison
  • Liaison with external agencies including, additional Educational Psychology and Speech Therapy provision.
  • To buy in additional expertise e.g. Specialist Teaching Service (STS)
  • Provide resources to support differentiation including ICT
  • Time to support staff in developing Individual Education Plans (IEP’s)
  • Staff training
Sometimes an appllication is made for 'Top-Up funding' from the Local Authority for individual children with higher needs through an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP).
