Special education provision capital fund

Local authorities must ensure there are sufficient good school places for all pupils, including those with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities.

Recently Bromley Council has made significant investment in specialist provision, expanding the places available for children with ASD at Glebe and Riverside Schools, opening Beacon House a vocational focussed centre for Key Stage 4 and  5 pupils at Bromley Beacon Academy and expanding resource provision at Crofton Infants School and Hawes Down Junior School.

We have also consulted with teachers, parents and carers and young people on priorities as part of our SEND4Change review during 2018. This included discussion on the future use of capital to support improving outcomes for children with SEND and disability.

The government has committed £365 million of capital funding to help local authorities create new school places and improve existing facilities for children and young people with SEN and disabilities, in consultation with parents and providers.

Bromley's share of this special provision Fund is £4,408,062 for the period 2018 to 2021.

Consultation update

The council consulted on its proposals for the use of the capital investment from the 27 June  to 31 July 2019 and has now updated its proposals for the use of the capital investment.

This information will be updated as proposals with schools are developed.
