If a pupil in an education setting has very
complex needs and requires specialist help to make progress with
their education, the school can apply for additional funding. This
is called 'element 3' or 'top up' funding.
The bid is concerned with the additional development and enhancement of a centralised web-based application for the new DSG High Needs Block Element 3 funding process (more commonly known as ‘top-up’).
The conditions of the bid were favourable, and no match funding is required. The primary conditions of the bid are to agree to publish all outputs of the project under open license.
The funding will be used to deliver a project which the Council had already identified as being necessary.
