Believe In Excellence

How are the school’s resources/funding allocated and matched to children’s needs?

The school is funded on a national formula per pupil, and schools are expected to find the first £6000 from within the budget to support children and young people with SEND who are on the School’s Inclusion register.


We are able to apply for “High Needs Top Up” funding based on strict criteria if it is felt that a child’s needs are above those which can be supported through the £6000 notional budget. The school uses the funds to put appropriate resources and support in place to meet the specific needs of an individual child. The SENCo, well being, teaching and support staff are included along with parents to decide what is to be put in place to ensure all individual needs are met.


Allerton CE Primary spends the money it receives wisely in order to ensure everyone can succeed. Where appropriate, additional staffing may be put in place to support your child.


This will often be in a small group as most children do not require 1-1 support. If a child does require this, the funding is spent on staffing costs. Parents are aware of these decisions. Some money will be spent on appropriate resources also.


We are committed to supporting parents whose child has a personal budget,and will work together to ensure the funding is used to best meet the needs of your child.
