It was noted this was an annual report seeking approval from the maintained schools’ Schools Forum members to de-delegate the funding for the SEBDOS Behaviour Support Service.
Unit costs for primary and secondary schools were queried, as Schools Forum maintained schools’ members had agreed the same rates for both the primary and secondary phases in December 2015. It was noted that, although the overall amount was not affected it did affect the hours to schools. It was understood this information had been incorrect the previous year.
Maintained school representatives at the meeting agreed to de-delegate the funding for the SEBDOS Behaviour Support Service, requesting a revised report be circulated to them for evidence and clarity about the final de-delegation amounts per school, based on the correct rates.
It was noted that the overall amount allocated would decrease as more schools became academies.
The Clerk would arrange for the revised report to be published on the SBC website.
