Educations settings, schools and colleges must as part of their normal budget planning, determine their approach of using their resources to support the progress of children and young people with SEND. If a child or young person then fails to make adequate progress, planned interventions and increasing access to specialist expertise should implemented.
When a provider makes special educational provision for a child or young person without an EHC plan, they must tell the parent/carers or young person what is happening.
In colleges, planning and reviewing of SEND support should closely involve the student, parents (where appropriate), teaching and support staff and a member of staff who is aware of the additional SEND support along with any other relevant professionals.
