How is support funded and allocated to students with SEND?

  • St Marylebone receives funding from the Education Funding Agency (EFA) and the local authority. This includes money to support the learning of students with SEND.
  • The Head teacher, in consultation with the School’s Governors, decides how this funding for SEND should be spent, based on the needs of the students in the school.
  • The Head teacher, Deputy Headteacher (Pastoral and Safeguarding) and the SEND team formally evaluate the effectiveness of the School’s current intervention and provision yearly. This evaluation informs their development plan, objectives and actions for the year, which may include additional or alternative interventions, staff training and equipment needs.
  • This process is reviewed regularly to ensure the best possible intervention is provided to those students who require additional support to learn.
