Funding for SEN
We receive a fixed sum for each pupil at the school and in addition receive top up funds depending on the level of need of the pupil. There are also other sources of funds we are able to use with specific children, such as those that are looked after or in receipt of free school meals.
Provision for Special Educational Needs
At Springfield Infants school and Nursery we recognise the complexity of children’s needs and try to meet them fully within the environment of a mainstream school and Nursery. We provide for all kinds of SEN included within the broad areas of need discussed in the SEN Code of Practice:
Please find below a breakdown of the additional and different needs which our children have as a percentage of the whole school population:
SEN support – 7%
Please note: Some children have needs which fall into more than one category.
Dual placements 0%
In addition to quality first teaching within every classroom we offer a range of interventions to support the individual needs of children we teach.
