SEND provision capital funding for pupils with EHC plans
What the special provision fund is for and how much funding local authorities will receive during the financial years 2018 to 2020.
The special provision funding is for local authorities to build places and improve facilities for pupils with special educational needs.
The document ‘Special provision fund allocations: explanatory note’ explains how we calculated the funding for each local authority.
Local authorities can spend the funding on places for children with EHC plans in the local area and improvements to facilities in mainstream and special schools, nurseries, colleges and other education providers.
We require local authorities to publish a concise plan to describe how they intend to use their allocation.
For more information about local authorities’ strategic planning read the ‘High needs strategic planning fund’ guidance.
