Some children in school may require additional funding in order to meet their needs. As a school, we work with the Local Authority and external agencies to determine what additional funding we may require to best support the children in our care.
The school funding formula is generated to include financial provision to specifically support pupils’ individual special needs. This funding is prioritised to tailor make learning to ensure small steps of progress are continually made by all SEND learners.
Each year the school is allocated a budget to help with the provision for SEN children. At Newker Primary School, our notional SEN budget 2017/18 amounts to £100,981.79
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.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
