Education Provision & Safeguarding

Still Talking About Sex... (and relationships)

February saw the first new guidance on relationships and sex education (RSE) issued by the Department for Education in 19 years. The new regime makes RSE compulsory in secondary schools from 2020, with primaries also required to teach relationships education.

SEN Funding: can it be challenged by schools?

There are three main funding streams to support special educational needs in schools.

Notional SEN funding

Notional SEN funding forms part of a mainstream schools’ budget share and derives from the schools block of a local authorities’ dedicated schools grant. A schools’ notional SEN funding is not calculated in relation to particular pupil but the overall population of the school, using factors such as income deprivation, numbers of pupils eligible for free school meals and a lump sum calculation.
