*NEW* Schools Inclusion Fund
This guidance document will explain how to apply for the new School Inclusion Fund. This fund is open to mainstream schools in Lambeth for children who are at SEND Support or have additional inclusion needs that require pastoral support beyond your current offer. This fund is to help expand your offer and to children who may have entered mid-year, may require an approach that is not currently part of your SEND offer, or needs additional support that will ensure full inclusion.
Also available is the School Cluster Inclusion Fund. Here a cluster of schools can apply for an amount of money to support their schools in an area of training. We are targeting Neurodiversity and SEMH for this fund.
Decisions to agree funding will be made by a panel of local authority and school personnel. We will evaluate the use of this funding over the pilot period and will expect parents and children to be part of the evaluation.
The School Inclusion Fund will be led by Sue Franklin, Head of Educational Psychology and Pupil Support Services and Betsy Nelson, Behaviour Consultant.
Applications will be made via a bespoke Extranet Site which will be published mid September 2019.
