enhanced resources school

Quick Reference

A mainstream school which receives additional funding to meet the needs of pupils with a particular special educational need or disability. A typical example of enhanced resource provision would be for pupils with hearing impairment. Schools in any key stage could have enhanced resourced status. Funding is received from the local authority to be managed by the school to enhance staffing, teaching, and learning resources, the learning environment, and access to the curriculum. Pupils are generally taught with peers in lessons with additional adult support and appropriate equipment, but may receive specialist teaching in small groups or one‐to‐one within the resource base.
