Welcome to the Autumn Term!

Marsh Infant and Nursery School

How is extra support allocated to children?

  • 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.
