Higher Needs Funding
Through monitoring, the SENDCo may wish to apply for ‘top up’ funding from the Local Authority for children who are on SEN Support with Higher Needs. The school is to provide the first £6,000 for SEN Support for each child from the schools notional budget, with a potential top up amount available from the Local Authority.
The process for this application is:
- Evidence to be collected for schools support of the child’s needs by SENDCo
- Application to be completed
- Application presented to two partner schools to decide if the child would benefit from top up funding
- If passed, application to be sent to Local Authority for final judgement
