SEND provision capital funding for pupils with EHC plans

Local authorities have a statutory duty to ensure that there is a school place available for every child including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). The Children and Families Act 2014 requires local authorities to keep the provision for children and young people with SEND under review (including its sufficiency), working with parents, young people, and providers.

In March 2017, the Department for Education (DfE) announced SEND capital funding allocations for all local authorities in England. South Gloucestershire Council was allocated a total of £1.195m covering the period 2018/19 – 2020/21.

The SEND capital fund is intended to support local authorities to make capital investments in provision for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities aged 0-25 (with Education, Health and Care plans) to improve the quality and range of provision available to the local authority.

All local authorities must publish a concise plan to describe how the allocation will be used. Details of the schemes planned in South Gloucestershire are set out in the special provision plan template.
