Derbyshire schools can apply to Inclusion Panel where they can demonstrate the implementation of a graduated response and how the notional SEND budget has been spent. Complete the Inclusion Panel Referral Form found on My Derbyshire - referrals must be from schools only.
Information for Parents
Inclusion Panel is a mechanism for Derbyshire schools to access additional funding to support the inclusion of children and young people with additional needs. The panel may also signpost schools to other services who could offer additional advice and support.
All referrals to the Inclusion Panel must be made by the school. It would usually be the SENCO who completes the application form but they must have the consent of the child or young person’s parents/carers.
