NAHT Analysis of High Needs Funding

Analysis by the National Association of Headteachers (NAHT) concludes that the funding that the  government currently pays to local authorities through its "high needs block" funding is not anywhere sufficient and needs to be boosted due to increasing demand for SEND support.

There is an increase in the number of pupils with statements of SEN or education, health and care (EHC) plans and an increase in the number of SEND pupils moving to more expensive, specialist settings.

They said that "The Chancellor must recognise the growing shortfall if we are to avoid our most vulnerable pupils missing out on the education that can allow them to realise their potential."
