What the local authority expects a setting to provide - Element 1

All schools should provide quality, inclusive teaching which takes into account the learning needs of all pupils in the classroom. It includes providing differentiated work and creating an inclusive learning environment.

Some pupils may require specific, additional and time-limited interventions to help to accelerate their progress to enable them to work at or above age-related expectations. These interventions are often targeted at a group of pupils with similar needs.

Element 1 or Basic Entitlement Funding (previously known as Age Weighted Pupil Unit - AWPU) is a sum a money for each pupil on roll. Current guidance suggests that a primary school allocates 3% and a secondary school contributes 2% of Element 1 funding to the Notional SEN Fund.
