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
The school funding formula is generated to include financial provision to specifically support a pupil’s individual special needs, this is called SEN notional funding.
Full details about the way in which funding is allocated to schools for special educational needs provision can be found here:
At St St Mary Magdalen Catholic Primary, our notional SEN budget (2020) amounts to £ 65352.11
This is used to support children and young people with SEND by:
- providing resources linked to individual Support Plans.
- Providing staff support where required.
- Spending identified within the Plan, Do, Review cycle (taking into account parent and pupil voice)
- Costs for outside agency input (cognition and learning, ASD etc.)
- School SLA – SALT
The school funding formula is generated to include financial provision to specifically support a pupil’s individual special needs, this is called SEN notional funding. This funding is prioritised to tailor-make learning to ensure small steps of progress are continually made by all SEN learners.
At St. Mary Magdalen’s Primary school, for those pupils with high SEND 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. In the event of a costed Provision Map being required, this will be developed in liaison with the child, young person, parent or carer. If a child has complex special educational needs, we could also receive additional funding from the Local Authority to meet the agreed outcomes.
SEND target tracking, and regular progress meetings ensure that all learners achieve and make progress at St. Mary Magdalen’s Primary School.
