The Local Authority sets the annual SEND budget for the school.
The head teacher in consultation with the governing body decides on the budget for special educational needs and disabilities on the basis of needs in the school.
The head teacher and the SENDCO discuss all the information they have about SEND in the school, including:
The children getting extra support already.
The children needing extra support.
The children who have been identified as not making as much progress as would be expected.
They then decide what resources/training and support is needed. All resources/training and support are reviewed regularly and changes made as needed.
