SEND Funding Arrangements in Essex

During the last year, Essex have undertaken a review of the arrangements for allocating “top-up” funding for children and young people with special educational needs.  Our (Essex Family Forum) Parent/Carer representatives have been part of a working group, alongside representatives from early years settings, mainstream and special schools, colleges, SEND leaders from the Local Authority and Health, developing a new approach.

Settings have been asked to use the new framework to allocate a new band for each child/young person with an Education Health and Care Plan and/or in receipt of top-up funding during the Autumn Term 2022.  You can find out more details about this in our Guide for Parents, by clicking on the image.
