    I am aware that teachers whether qualified or not receive SEN on top of their salary. Does this apply with independent SEND schools too?

    The statutory entitlement to SEN Allowance only applies to LA Maintained schools and is defined in STPCD (see extract below). Academies that incorporate STPCD into employment contracts will also pay it.

    There's no obligation on private schools to use STPCD or to pay an SEN allowance. Some might, others won't.
