Outcomes of SEND Capital Programme Consultation

In 2017 Central Government announced a funding scheme to help local authorities to provide SEND places.

The funding is to help local authorities to invest in provision for people with SEN and disabilities aged 0 to 25. It is intended for the benefit of children and young people with education, health and care plans (EHCP) for whom the local authority is responsible.

The funding can be invested in creating new or additional places at good or outstanding provision, improving current facilities, or developing new facilities.

The funding is not intended to create additional places for pupils who do not have EHCPs, or maintenance work that schools are required to fund such as ramps and wider doorways for pupils with mobility needs.

Medway has been allocated £2.34m. This is being paid in three instalments for the financial years of 2018 to 19, 2019 to 20 and 2020 to 21.

The plan below shows the status of projects which were approved in 2018 to 19, and the projects selected for the 2019 to 20 round of funding, as well as a proposal for 2020 to 21 which will be consulted upon at the appropriate time.
