unstar this property answer text <p>Local authorities must ensure there are sufficient good school places for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities. If a local authority identifies a shortage of special school places for children and young people in its area, resulting in a significant number having to travel a long way to access an appropriate placement, it will need to consider creating or expanding specialist provision, either attached to mainstream schools or in special schools.</p><p>The department has allocated £215 million of capital funding (over and above basic need funding) to help build new places at mainstream and special schools, and to improve existing places to benefit current and future pupils. Local authorities, through consultation with local stakeholders, should decide how best to spend their allocation to meet local needs.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We recognise the challenges that special schools face supporting pupils with high levels of need, that is why base funding is set at a much higher level of £10,000 per place. On top of this, local authorities provide top up funding to reflect additional need in respect of individual pupils. The level of the top-up funding is a matter for agreement between the local authority and the school, and we do not prescribe in detail how local authorities should allocate their high needs funding.</p><p> </p><p>To assist local authorities in making sure that special schools have sufficient resources, in 2018-19 we have provided Barnsley with £21.9 million in high needs funding, 3.1% more than they planned to spend in 2017-18. These allocations can be found at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2018-to-2019" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2018-to-2019</a>.</p><p> </p> more like this
