How is extra support allocated to children and how do they move between the different levels?

  • The school budget, received from the Department for Education, includes money for supporting children with SEND.
  • The Headteacherthen decides on the budget for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in consultation with the school governors, on the basis of needs in the school.
  • The Headteacher and the SENCo discuss all the information they have about SEND in the school, including:
    • The children getting extra support already
    • The children needing extra support
    • The children who have been identified as not making as much progress as would be expected 


The Headteacher and SENCo decide what resources/training and support is needed accordingly.


  • All resources/training and support are reviewed regularly and changes made as needed.
