Welcome to

St Lawrence

Catholic Primary School

"Our school is a place where we all come together as one community to learn, have fun and make lasting friendships all under God's love and care."

How are the school’s resources allocated and matched to children’s special educational needs?

The school budget, received from Government, includes money for supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).


  • The school uses a strategic Provision Management Cycle to identify additional support and provision needs across the school, each academic year, which is budget dependent.

  • The Head Teacher and Governing Body decide on the budget for SEND on the basis of needs in the school.

  • Children with EHC Plans, receive some additional funding from the LA to help meet specific needs and/or provide additional resources.

  • The School allocates funding as part of the budget setting process in order to meet the School Development Plan priorities and additional training needs.
