(UK) Hampshire: Schools to get $33M in SPED funding

Mar 30, 2024, Hampshire Chronicle : MP welcomes £26m [$33M] of funding to support children with SEND  

 SE England

The MP for North East has welcomed the news that Hampshire is set to benefit from more than £26m [$33M]of funding to make sure children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and alternative provision (AP) receive an education that meets their needs.

The Government is investing a record annual £850 million [$1B] in councils, to create new places for young people with SEND and AP in mainstream and special schools.

This will provide specialist support for children with autism, learning difficulties, mobility difficulties, and more to meet their extra needs.

Since coming into office, the Government has opened 108 new special schools, with a further 92 on the way, so every child can access the right support at the right time, and benefit from a full education.

This marks a tripling in previous levels of investment, with a £2.6 billion [$3.3B] package from 2022 to 2025. . . .
