Short Term Contingency Funding Request Form (for students without an EHC Plan)
Short Term Contingency Funding is available to schools/ educational settings in Westminster to support their SEN interventions with costs of or exceeding the £6,000 provided to schools through their SEN budget. To apply, schools/ education settings must complete and return a request form for children and young people without an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Contingency Funding must be applied for by a school/ education setting on behalf of Westminster residents who attend Westminster schools.
Any funding that is agreed will be provided on a termly basis and can only be allocated for up to one year. In order for funding to be agreed, the request must clearly evidence that the school/ education setting has used their £6000 notional SEN budget to provide SEN support, and intend on continuing this support for a time –limited period.
Completed request should be sent to Westminster SEN Team and each submission will be considered at the weekly EHC Panel meeting. Schools/ Education settings will subsequently be informed of the panel’s decision.
