Special Provision Capital Plan
The government has allocated capital funding to local authorities to support meeting local needs and priorities.
North Lincolnshire Council has been allocated £500k capital funding over three years to create new school places and improve existing facilities for children and young people with SEN and disabilities. The Local Authority, in consultation with local stakeholders, has determined how the funding should be prioritised to improve special provision for children and young people with education, health and care plans (EHCP).
The plan below outlines three development areas for North Lincolnshire.
The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Team have responsibility for:
the management of Education Health Care (EHC) needs assessment process
the annual review of EHC plans and statements
managing the transfer review process for those who currently receive support as a result of a Learning Difficulties Assessment (LDA) post 16
providing advice and guidance to education providers, parents and other professionals regarding EHC needs assessment process
