The budget allocation for special needs provision 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.
At Green Lane CE Primary School, our notional SEN budget amounts to £29,920
This is used to support children and young people with SEND by providing specific interventions and targeted support including:
- Set phonics groups
- 1 to 1 phonics and literacy intervention
- Comprehension groups
- Daily reading groups
- SATs booster groups
- Visual perception groups
- Movement and motor skills groups
- Basic skills enrichment groups
- Emotional health and wellbeing support including counselling
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.
The SENCO and School Business Manager work closely to review and update costed provision maps. They both meet weekly with the team of teaching assistants and continually adapt interventions according to individual needs. The SENCO meets with the Leadership Team to review progress and allocation of resources. The governor with responsibility for special educational needs reviews the provision on a termly basis and regularly reports to the Finance Committee of the school’s governing body. Parents views are collected within meetings so they are clear on the matching and process.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
