The budget allocation is agreed between our school and the Local Authority at the beginning of each financial year. This is monitored each term by the Governing Body.
At Ingleton C of E Primary School our notional SEN budget amounts to £9,986 (2018-2019) This funding is prioritised to tailor make learning to ensure small steps of progress are continually made by all SEND learners.
Additionally, we have a small number of Teaching Assistants who are partly funded from the SEN budget and deliver programmes or interventions designed to meet groups of children’s needs. The budget is allocated on a needs basis. The children who have the most complex needs are given targeted support.
All children no matter what their needs are, receive daily Quality First Teaching. At Ingleton C of E Primary we aim to keep children with SEND part of their whole class therefore support is often given in the form of a Teaching Assistant working alongside the children and teacher. Interventions are carried out throughout the day at times when the children do not miss their whole class teaching.
If a child has complex special educational needs, we could also receive additional funding from the Local Authority to meet the agreed outcomes. Costed Provision Maps are created with detailed evidence of supporting resources provided in school. This builds a portfolio of the progress each child makes.
Detailed assessments and target tracking ensure that all learners achieve and make progress at Ingleton C of E Primary School including those with SEN.
