SEND provision capital funding for pupils with EHC plans

Local authorities must ensure there are sufficient good school places for all pupils, including those with SEN and disabilities. In March 2017, the Government committed £215 million of capital funding from 2018 to 2021 to help local authorities create new school places and improve existing facilities for children and young people with SEN and disabilities, in consultation with parents and providers. In May 2018, the Department for Education announced a £50 million increase to this fund and in December 2018 a further £100 million to local authorities, taking the total investment in this fund to £365 million (Special Provision Capital Fund Guidance January 2019).

Individual allocations are published at

To access the funding local authorities should publish plans on their local offer, updated by March each year, showing what they are planning and how they have consulted. Details of the Council’s plans for expenditure is available by downloading the attached Special Provision plan template SGC.
