St Helens SEND Capital Programme – Update 2019
In March 2017, the government announced a capital funding (special provision fund) to support local authorities to make capital investments in provision for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.
Local authorities can use the funding to invest in new places and improvements to facilities for pupils with education, health and care plans in mainstream and special schools, nurseries, colleges and other provision.
The Department of Education (DfE) is providing £848,837 of funding for St Helens between 2018 and 2021.
The St Helens Special Capital Plan has been updated to reflect the priority areas for investment and includes projects intended to be funded, wholly or partly, by the special provision capital fund by the DfE.
Indicative costs and the detail of individual schemes will be developed as part of the consultation process with relevant schools, and the approval to proceed with each scheme will be subject to the appropriate council decision-making process. The plan will be revised as necessary in order to reflect the affordability and relative priority of schemes.
