How is extra support allocated at St. Patrick's Catholic Primary School?

Budget arrangements for SEN

The school budget includes money for supporting pupils with SEND.

The headteacher determines the deployment of resources for SEND, in consultation with the governing body and following discussions with the SENCO relating to all information about SEND in the school.

Consideration is taken of children currently receiving support, children who would benefit from extra support, and children identified as not making as much progress as we would expect.

Budget allocation also considers resources, training and support needs relating to SEND within the school.


Provision mapping

Pupil SEND needs across the school are identified on provision maps.

This identifies all support given within each area of the school.

Provision maps are regularly reviewed and changes are made regularly. 

This ensures that the needs of children are met and resources are deployed as effectively as possible.
