Schools may want to consider applying for high needs funding if it is felt that a pupil requires additional support above the £6k threshold. Schools must demonstrate that they have put in place support up to this level.
This fund is available for Hounslow mainstream schools
Applications should be submitted to SEN team and these will be considered at a panel which meets monthly.
** UPDATE 28Feb 2019 **
The Local Authority have agreed not to hold panel meetings for the rest of the current academic year for High Needs Funding, due to the significantly low numbers of applications currently being received, and to also take into consideration our move to the new building next month which does not offer any parking facilities.
Applications can still be made via the normal route and in accordance with the current timescale, however, they will be reviewed internally via email by the following panel members:
Head of SEND (chair)
Deputy Principal EP
Head of SENSS
Head of SEN
We aim to review the process and will liaise with colleagues further regarding this.
