FOI Request Educational Support for Additional Needs
I would be grateful if you could please send me information in relation to educational support in relation to ASN in mainstream schools in your local authority:
1. How much was spent by your council on educational support for Additional Support Needs, in each year since FY2010/11? Please break this down by:
a. Staff spend (such as classroom assistants, teaching assistants etc.)
b. Other (such as equipment, training, etc.)
Note: please define “educational support” as it relates to Additional Support Needs within mainstream schools only. Please do not include special schools.
2. How many GTCS-registered classroom assistants and teaching assistants for ASN were working for your local authority in each year since FY 2010/11?
1. We are unable to provide the information for the requested years as we can only look at the last three years on FMS - this is the only place we can identify the schools' costs separately.
Question 1a and 1b
Please note that budgets for ASN Resources are included in the individual School's Devolved Budgets.
