DfE Notes on the Top-Up Funding Indicator DfE has provided the following notes on the Top-Up Funding Indicator 4.In both cases the top-up funding relates to individual pupils and the time they are in the school or PRU, and is to meet the costs of their support which are additional to the support costs expected to be met from the school or PRU budget share. 5.In schools it is expected that most pupils for whom top-up funding is paid will also have a statement of special educational needs (SEN), but this is not an automatic link and it will depend on the local policy on statements of SEN. 6.This data item will be used for funding allocation purposes, and to inform the development of the high needs funding system in the future 4
