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.
Full details about the way in which funding is allocated to schools for special educational needs provision can be found here:
At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, our notional SEN budget amounts to £26,323
This is used to support children and young people with SEND by:
- This money has been spent on additional support staff, resources including Lexia upgrade and additional iPads.
- This funding is prioritised to tailor make learning to ensure small steps of progress are continually made by all SEN learners.
At St Joseph’s RC 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 funding and financial support can be applied for from the Local Authority.
Detailed assessments and provision maps, target tracking and regular progress meetings ensure that all learners achieve and make progress at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. Parents of children with SEND may meet with the SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) to discuss any costed provision concerns they may have.
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:
