How is the decision made about what type and how much support my child will receive?
Decisions about the amount and type of support children receive are made involving discussions with the family. Information from a range of professionals, including staff working with the child in class, will be taken into account. For children with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) or Statement of Need decisions about support are made in Annual Review meetings, with the team working together to reach the best conclusion for support for the child. The local authority allocates funding for each child and the best use of this is reviewed regularly.
