Q12. How are the school's resources allocated to children's SEND?

Resources ( including staffing ) are allocated on an individual needs basis. As a minimum currently all our pupils on SA/EYA stage of the code of practice receive 30 minutes of additional support per week and our SA+/EYA+ pupils receive a minimum of 50 minutes per week. In practice the majority of our pupils receive far more support than this. Where a pupil has a statement of educational need or new Education, health care plan ( EHCP) the resource needs may be mapped out in an individual provision plan or CRISP ( Birmingham’s model of assessing need, determining provision and allocating funding ). The school is responsible for allocating SEND resources to meet pupils’ needs. For pupils with statements whose needs require more than the nominated amount we can apply for TOP UP funding in order to meet their individual needs.
