Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS)

Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS) funding is used to provide specialist services and support for students with the very highest needs for special education.

ORS helps students join in and learn alongside other students at school. Any student who meets the ORS criteria is included in the scheme.

Once a student is in ORS, their funding stays with them throughout their time at school.
