         Why use provision maps
• They empower staff and enhance the
  inclusion coordinator’s role.
• They allow you to audit the needs of children
  and plan systematically how best to use the
  school’s resources to meet those needs.
• They allow you to plan both the staffing and
  the skills that will be required to
  meet the needs of children
   The benefits for your work as inclusion
         co-ordinator or SENCO
• Provision maps can reduce paperwork.
• They provide a basis for evaluating your
  provision, and building this into school
  self-evaluation.
• They provide information for reporting you
  have to do – such as the governors’ report to
  parents or school profile.
• They provide clear and transparent
  information for LEA monitoring.
   The benefits for the school
• Provision maps prevent over-
  provision in some classes and
  under-provision in others.
• They allow the school to cost
  provision and manage the budget
  effectively.
  The benefits for children and parents and
                    carers
• Children receive more coherent provision.
• Provision for individual children can be
  highlighted, tracked and monitored.
• Provision maps provide good information for
  parents and carers and increased parental
  confidence that their child’s needs will be
  met.
• Provisions that are costed show how much is
  being spent for any given child
