We have today (8 June 2017) published a new document:  Guidance on - specialist support services, early years services and post 16 funding.

This publication follows questions about funding of educational support for children and young people with sensory impairment (SI) which were raised by Heads of SI Services on their email forum during May 2017. Brian Gale, the Special Education Consortium representative on the DfE’s Schools and Academy Funding Group, responded with a series of answers which have been compiled in to a NatSIP guidance document.

Although the questions cover support of school-aged pupils, early years children and post-16 students, they all relate to what funding has been included in the High Needs Block and how this funding can be used
