Central Bedfordshire Education Panel
Please read the following information carefully before applying:
The following application is to support schools and settings with pupils who have additional needs and may be at risk of permanent exclusion. Schools and setting must clearly evidence where they have accessed support from other agencies and the interventions that school/setting has already put in place in line with the SEND Code of Practice. Additionally, schools are required to include a Supporting Statement from the lead outside agency involved with the child/young person. This could be Educational Psychology, Jigsaw, Oakbank or Access and Inclusion. This funding is short term and the application must clearly evidence an exit strategy for when the funding ceases.
Schools and settings may also apply for short term funding for pupils who have accessed a school place as part of the In Year Fair Access Protocol. Schools and settings must evidence the plans they are putting in place to successfully integrate these pupils into their school.
