How additional funding works

Core funding

All Schools receive funding for all children with Special Educational Needs, this funding is used to support children in the
different waves of provision including equipment. The local authority may contribute to very expensive items of equipment.

Education and Health Care plans

If a child requires more than the core funding to meet their needs then it may be suitable for the school to apply for an Education and Health Care Plan known as an EHC plan. Families and children will always be involved in the process and writing of any EHC plan. If successful, the EHC plan can provide extra support for children. families may also apply for an EHC plan themselves if they wish.

For further information on additional funding please contact us at or visit us in school and we
will be happy to help.
