High Needs Provision Capital Allocation Consultation

Closed 18 Jun 2021

Opened 27 May 2021


The Department for Education (DfE) has announced local authority funding to support the provision of new places for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and those requiring alternative provision. This is collectively referred to as high needs provision.

Trafford Council’s allocation of this funding is £1,676,744. 

The funding is mainly intended to create new places and improve existing provision for children and young people with complex needs or who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). However, it can also be used to support SEND pupils without an EHCP and pupils who require alternative provision without an EHCP, where appropriate. 


Why your views matter

We want to know what you think about the proposals, as well as giving you an opportunity to tell us your ideas about how we should use the funding.
