How are decisions made about how much support individual children receive?

  • Decisions concerning support are discussed with parents, staff and, where appropriate, external specialists as well as the child themselves.
  • For some children with complex needs, the school receives additional funding from the Local Authority through an individual Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). In these cases, the Head teacher & SENCO base the child’s additional support on the statutory provision and strategies detailed within the EHCP document.
