SEND High Needs Funding Consultation ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Dear All,

Please note the publication of the following consultation. Please disseminate to any colleagues you feel may wish to contribute.

SEND High Needs Funding Consultation

Newham Council provides mainstream schools with funding from the High Needs Budget for pupils with the highest special educational

needs and disabilities.

This budget will be overspent by approximately £8.2 million in 2019/20. The Department for Education will require Newham Council to provide a Budget Recovery Plan for how we would address this overspend when it happens. We are publishing a consultation to get your views on a proposal about how we can reduce the overspend.

The consultation will be open between 22/01/2020 and 03/03/2020.

Many thanks.
