High Needs Funding

SEND High Needs Funding Consultation Events

We are looking to improve the system for allocating high needs top-up funding to children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan in Cheshire East.

We would like views from schools, SENCOs, parent carers and other partners/professionals on this and are holding a number of events to gather your input and work with you to develop an improved model.

Purpose of the events

  1. To provide an update on a proposed new model for High Needs Top-up funding
  2. To consult and gather feedback on the proposed model and it's implementation
