The school budget, received from Derby City LA, includes money for supporting children with SEND.
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 SENCO 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.
Support for children at BHT Primary School is based on research about the effectiveness of SEND provision; in the majority of cases this is not one to one support but a variety of strategies to meet the individual needs of our pupils.
In some cases we may approach the LA for support with additional funding where levels of need are extremely high.
