"Cuffley School is incredibly warm and welcoming." Ofsted, 12th & 13th March 2024


A foundation school

How are the school’s resources allocated and matched to children’s Special Educational Need?

We have an amount identified in the overall budget, called the notional special educational needs (SEN) budget. This money is spent on appropriate resources, funding a full-time emotional literacy support assistant (ELSA), funding specialist help when necessary, ensuring that there is appropriate learning support assistants (LSAs) in class and to carry out interventions, as well as equipping a dedicated nurture room, the Oasis. Pupil premium money is spent on assisting with extra-curricular trips/activities; small group and 1:1 tuition provided by an experienced teacher/LSA. An element of the Sports Premium is used to provide a lunchtime sports coach. For some individuals extra funding can be secured via local cluster groups, although this is minimal.
