FAQ05: How is extra support allocated to children?

How is extra support allocated to children and how do they move between the different levels?  

  • The school budget, received from Norfolk LA, includes money for supporting children with SEND. These funds are held by the Methwold Cluster, to support children requiring additional support.
  • The Head Teacher decides on the budget for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in consultation with the school governors, 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
  • And decide what resources/training and support is needed.
  • All resources/training and support are reviewed regularly and changes made as needed.
