How are the school’s resources/funding allocated and matched to children’s needs?

The School has a notional budget for SEND, allocated based on a formula applied by the Leeds LA.  It is the responsibility of the Principal to allocate the budget according to the needs of the children in school each year.

If a child has more complex needs, the school can apply for additional funding (Funding for Inclusion) at certain points throughout the child’s schooling.  The criteria for the allocation of additional funding is set by the Local Education Authority FFI team.  The SENCO will meet with parents to discuss applications for this funding when it is deemed necessary.  If awarded, the funding is spent to support the needs of the individual child.   this will be used to enable adjustments to be made to the curriculum, to purchase specific equipment, schemes or other resources or to allocate additional support to the class the child is in.

We believe strongly as a school that children do not benefit from having one person allocated to work with them all the time.  We want every child in our school to be the responsibility of every member of staff and for them to build positive relationships with all the adults in school.  Where specialist training or intimate care is needed a key worker may be identified.
