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 explaining how funding is allocated to schools for special educational needs provision can be found at: Family Information Service
At St. Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School and Byron Sixth Form College, our notional SEND budget amounts to £285,867
This is used to support children and young people with SEND by:
• Staffing – We have four dedicated learning support assistants who work in and out of the classroom
• Literacy interventions such as paired reading, Read, Write Inc programme and accelerated reader programmes
• Numeracy interventions such as extra time table classes
• Supported revision sessions
• Social skills groups
• Altered curriculum
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. An example of a costed provision map can be found here:
