Funding 53: Request to transfer 0.5% Schools Block to High Needs Block
Posted on 6 January 2020 by Education Finance
Request to transfer 0.5% Schools Block to High Needs Block
Following a discussion at Devon Education Forum (20th November 2019) relating to the views given by schools, as part of the consultation process, on transferring funding from Schools to High Needs we have been asked to share the following proposal with schools and seek your support.
Devon requests school approval to transfer 0.5% of the Schools block to High Needs to be used to pump prime additional outreach support for Primary and Secondary schools so that they can accommodate the needs of individuals who have specific provisions identified within their mainstream Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). This proposal is to facilitate this through central support teams or where possible funding to the school to buy in the support needed. This transfer would not be used to offset the current deficit position.
Please refer to the supporting documentation on the website prior to completing your response to this questionnaire.
