Consultation launched on funding for SEND and those who need AP

News - 07 May 2019

The DfE is aware of concerns about the funding allocated for young people with SEND in England and is looking carefully at how much overall funding will be needed in future years.

The call for evidence is an invitation to consider other aspects of the funding arrangements that:

  • could be changed to help LAs, school, colleges and other providers in their support for children and young people with SEND, those requiring alternative provision and those of at risk of exclusion from school, and 
  • may not be helping us get the most value from the resources available

This is your opportunity to let the DfE know your views on funding and the impact on pupils with SEND, and we strongly encourage you to respond to the consultation. The consultation closes on 31st July.
