Exceptional SEND Funding
In exceptional cases, providers can request funding from the high needs block for pupils who may or may not require an Education, Health and Care Plan in the longer term. This is through an Additional Support Contract.
Health services, therapies and equipment in child care settings
Physio/Occupational Therapists are able to apply to the Local Authority for high-cost equipment in order to support the inclusion of a disabled child into a childcare setting. To be eligible to apply, the child must be accessing early education funded provision at the childcare setting.
