The Department for Education have launched a call for evidence on the funding arrangements for young people with SEND and those who need alternative provision.
The Department are aware of concerns about the funding allocated for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in England, and are looking carefully at how much overall funding will be needed in future years. This call for evidence is an invitation to consider other aspects of the funding arrangements that:
- could be changed to help local authorities, schools, colleges and other providers in their support for young people with SEND, those requiring alternative provision (AP) and those at risk of exclusion from school, and
- may not be helping us get the most value from the resources available.
