The main aim of the book is to investigate the principles and practice for allocating additional resources by formula funding, to provide inclusive education for pupils with additional and special educational needs (AEN/SEN) but without statements within the context of Fair Funding and Local Management of Schools (LMS). There will also be two subsidiary aims. The first subsidiary aim is to investigate how the purposes underlying differential funding for special educational needs affect the rules for allocation embodied in a funding formula. The second subsidiary aim is to examine the funding relationship for non-statemented special educational needs and pupils with statements in an attempt to develop a coherent approach to resourcing throughout the continuum of SEN. Each of the subsidiary aims is addressed through more specific key questions (see Table 1.1).
