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.
The school funding formula is generated to include financial provision to specifically support pupils’ individual special needs.

This funding is prioritised to tailor make learning to ensure small steps of progress are continually made by all SEN learners.
At South Stanley Junior school, for those pupils with High Needs, Costed Provision Maps are created with detailed evidence of supporting resources provided in school. This builds a portfolio of the progress each child makes which allows us to target resources effectively. Additional funding and financial support can be applied for from the Local Authority if deemed necessary.
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:
