The new approach has been developed by a group of head teachers, SENDCOs, local authority officers and a range of specialists. It is intended to make sure that the funding for children and young people with SEND is used most appropriately.
The Local Authority plans to introduce the new arrangements from 1st April 2019, for new requests for EHC assessments and for children with an EHCP who are transferring to the next education phase in 2020. There will be no changes to the funding for children and young people in existing placements.
The 'Slough Banding Matrix' and 'Review of the Slough top up funding model' is available in the Downloads section.
THE CONSULTATION PERIOD ON THE SEND BANDING MODEL HAS BEEN EXTENDED BY 1 WEEK - CLOSING NOW ON FRIDAY, 22nd FEBRUARY.
