SEND strategy

We’re keen to hear your views and opinions about our new special educational needs and disabilities strategy for children and young people in Kent.

Read the consultation and have your say.

The aim of the SEND strategy is to improve the educational, health and emotional wellbeing outcomes for all of Kent's children and young people with special educational needs and those who are disabled.

This strategy incorporates the Accessibility Strategy (under paragraph 1 schedule 10 of the Equality Act 2012).

DfE Special Provision Capital Fund

The Special Provision Capital Fund will provide £11,167,240 towards specialist provision in Kent: The funding was allocated in two tranches, £6,600,000 and £4,589,277.

A consultation was held in summer 2019 to gain views as to how we would use the second tranche of £4,589,277.  It was decided that this should be used to increase provision for pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
