Schools can also apply for ‘top up’ funding for children who require support that exceeds that available to the school. Schools are now required to request ‘top-up’ funding direct from the Virtual School Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (VS SEND).
On receipt of a request for ‘top-up’ funding, a panel of moderators (moderators are school SENDCOs/Heads and Local Authority SEND specialists) will consider:
- How the delegated SEN funding has already been used
- Evidence of its effectiveness and impact
before making its decision. This process is facilitated by the VS SEND.
