HOW ARE THE SCHOOL’S RESOUCES ALLOCATED AND MATCHED TO CHILDREN’S SEN NEEDS?

v  At Orchard Junior School we ensure that all children with Special Educational Needs are supported to the best of the school’s ability with the funds available to us.

v  Our team of nineteen  Learning Support Assistants are funded from by the Notional SEN Budget together with additional funds made available by the Governing Body.  They work alongside the class teachers to deliver intervention programmes designed to meet individual needs.

v  The budget is allocated on a needs basis.  Pupils with the most complex needs are given the most support e.g. 1:1 support from a Learning Support Assistant.
