SEND special schools funding rates review

Closed 27 Nov 2020

Opened 2 Oct 2020


We are proposing a change to funding formula methods in council-maintained special schools, as these have not been reviewed since 2014. The aim of the proposal is to ensure a fair and equitable funding to meet pupil needs.

Findings from the consultation will be taken back to the city council’s Executive and will require agreement from all special schools, and the Department for Education.
