In 2015-16, the school received notional SEND funding of £140,529. This was spent on a variety of interventions. The funding for SEND is focussed on work of the Achievement Centre and is delegated so that the multitude of provisions outlined in the SEND Information Report are available to those students who are in need of intervention. The main areas of expenditure include staffing of the Achievement Centre, provision of specialised resources, investment in learning programmes (including ICT), funding enrichment opportunities, enlisting external expertise and provision of continuous professional development. Elements of our Pupil Premium funding and ‘catch up’ funding have been used to support our disadvantaged children in accessing support programmes coordinated through the Achievement Centre (e.g, EDDY/HAGGRID horticulture project at KS4).
