The Government has launched a consultation on the way it proposes to fund support for SEN in the future. The main proposal is to use a formula to determine how much high needs funding to distribute to each local authority. This formula will not necessarily relate to the number of statements/EHC Plans in the area.
This is a key consultation, affecting your child’s future. So please use this opportunity to pass your views onto Ministers at the Department for Education. You can read the proposals and complete the response form on the Department for Education’s website – click on High Needs Funding Reform.
