I would like you to provide me with the following information:

Within the School Budget Share for 2017/18 (September 2017 – August 2018) the school has received the following funding for SEN (Element 2 Funding):
• £23,454 to fund Element 2 of an Individual Assigned Resource (this contributes towards the cost of an EHCP)

In addition the school is planned to receive element 3 funding for existing named pupils of £7,000 for the period September 2017 – August 2018.

• Details of the criteria you use to decide when to make an EHC needs assessment of children with my child’s special educational needs.
