5. How is extra support allocated to children within Holy Cross?

  • The school budget, includes money for supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
  • 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, Senior Leadership Team and the Inclusion Manager discuss all relevant information they have about SEND in the school, including:
    • pupils getting extra support already
    • pupils needing extra support
    • pupils who are identified as not making as much progress as would be expected

This then results in deciding what resources/training and support is needed.

  • All resources/training and support are reviewed regularly and changes are made when necessary.
