Special Provision Capital Fund Short Plan

Local authorities must ensure there are sufficient good school places for all pupils, including those with SEN and disabilities.

In March 2017 the Government has committed £215 million of capital funding to help local authorities create new school places and improve existing facilities for children and young people with SEN and disabilities, in consultation with parents and providers. In May 2018 the Government announced a further £50m and in December 2018, a further £100m

This capital is not ring-fenced and local authorities can use it as they see fit to improve special provision for children and young people with education, health and care (EHC) plans. This funding can be invested in mainstream schools and academies, special units, special schools and academies, early years settings, further education colleges or to make other provision for children and young people aged from 0 to 25.

This guidance sets out:

• What the fund can be spent on

• How local authorities need to plan and consult to get the best outcomes

• Requirements that local authorities need to meet to receive their allocation

All local authorities must complete and publish a Special Provision Capital Short Plan that sets out how they intend to invest their allocation, which must be visible to parents, carers and other local groups.
