Additional funding for local authorities to implement the SEND reforms announced

The Department for Education announced additional funding for local authorities to support them in the implementation of the SEND reforms which take effect later this year.

In a letter sent to all local authorities it states that the funding will be £45.2 million for 2014-15 and an indicative amount of £31.7million for 2015-16.

This funding is in addition to the £70million SEN Reform grant that local authorities have already received in 2014-15.
