SEND Funding: Your Questions Answered

Recent changes to SEND and top-up funding in Devon have prompted lots of enquiries from parents and carers.

To answer some of your questions, we’ve published two factsheets to help you understand the funding schools and colleges get for children and young people with SEND, and how that money is allocated. The factsheets contain information about Element 3 top-up funds too.

SEND Funding:  Your Questions Answered is available as a page of key points and a longer more detailed factsheet.

You can find out more about funding by downloading our leaflet, Education Support, Resources and Funding for Children with Additional Needs. You can also download a leaflet about SEND support in schools.

How to Guide to checking a draft Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan

One of the main findings from some of our recent conversations with parents was that you’d like to have more practical information from us.

So, we’ve kicked off by publishing ‘How to check a draft EHC plan’. Those of you who have been faced with this task will know that it can feel daunting. So, our new guide takes you step by step through the process. It tells you what to do and by when, and shows you the important things to check for. It also explains what a good EHC plan should look like.

If you have queries or comments to make about any of our factsheets or leaflets, we would love to hear from you. Contact us with your feedback.
