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 on the County Durham Families Service website
At our School, our notional SEN budget 2015-2016 amounts to £13241
This is used to support children and young people with SEND by:
- buying resources
- funding support staff
- purchasing support from specific services
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.
If you have any questions about our SEND Local Offer please contact the school and we will try our best to help you.
