Copperfield Academy SRP (Opened January 2022)
What is a SRP?
A Specialist Resource Provision (SRP) is a mainstream school-based provision, reserved for pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Copperfield’s SRP serves children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) that require higher levels of support than can be provided in local mainstream schools, but whose needs are not so complex that special school placements are appropriate.
How many places will be available in the SRP and how will they be allocated?
The designated number for the SRP is 8. This, in essence, means that up to 8 places can be offered. However, fewer places may be commissioned initially, growing over time as the school increases to its full entry of provision.
Places will be for pupils with EHCPs with a diagnosis of ASD, or on the ASD assessment pathway, and would be allocated by the Local Authority, not by the school. These places would be in addition to the school’s Published Admission Number (PAN).
How will the places be financed?
KCC agree the number of commissioned places in the SRP on an annual basis. Copperfield Academy will receive £10,000 for each place commissioned plus ‘top up’ funding for each pupil on roll.SEN-Report-2023
