At Ladybrook, how is the decision made about how much support a child will receive?
• These decisions are taken very seriously. Consultation with teachers and agencies, as well as assessment results, guide the production of a provision map. A provision map is a paper document that allocates support in the areas of school where it is most needed. It gives information about costs and staffing as well as the type of support. The senior leadership team and SENDCo work together to allocate resources to the areas which most need it.
• If a child has a health, education and care plan the number of hours support a child received may be determined by the authority. These hours are then integrated into the provision map and follow the child through school for as long as may be necessary.
