star this property answer text <p>​The Department for Education is working closely with NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care to support schools and colleges to provide support for children and young people with emerging mental health issues and secure specialist treatment where it is needed.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan published in January 2019 announced that by 2023/24 an extra 345,000 children and young people in England aged 0-25 will receive mental health support via NHS funded mental health services and new Mental Health Support Teams. Mental health services will continue to receive a growing share of the NHS budget, with funding to grow by at least £2.3 billion a year by 2023/24. Spending on children and young people’s mental health services will grow faster than adult services, and faster than other NHS spending. As set out in the 'Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision' green paper, the new support teams will work with groups of schools and colleges to provide swift access to support for children and young people with emerging and mild and moderate needs and support referrals to more specialist treatment.</p><p>The Department for Education is providing up to £95 million between 2019/20 and 2023/24 to support the delivery of the green paper proposals, including the costs of a significant training programme for senior mental health leads, to help schools and colleges to put in place whole school approaches to supporting pupil mental health.​</p>

star this property answer text <p>The level of high needs funding for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) for each year are published in the dedicated schools grant (DSG) allocations each year, as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Amount</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>£5.0 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>£5.2 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>£5.2 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>£5.3 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18*</p></td><td><p>£5.8 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19**</p></td><td><p>£6.1 billion</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2019-20**</p></td><td><p>£6.3 billion</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>* In 2017-18 the baselines of the high needs block and the schools block within DSG were adjusted, to take account of local authorities’ spending decisions.</p><p>** Includes the £125 million added to the high needs block in 2018-19 and 2019-20, in recognition of the cost pressures local authorities have been facing, announced in December 2018.</p><p>Information on the number and proportion of children in schools with an education, health and care (EHC) plan or previously statement of SEN are published in the annual ‘SEN in England’ statistical release. A time series can be found in Table 1 at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/special-educational-needs-in-england-january-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/special-educational-needs-in-england-january-2018</a>.</p><p>Information on all young people (up to age 25) with an EHC plan is published in the annual ‘Statements of SEN and EHC Plans’ statistical release. A time series can be found in Table 1 at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/statements-of-sen-and-ehc-plans-england-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/statements-of-sen-and-ehc-plans-england-2018</a>.</p><p>The first full year that statutory EHC plans were in place was 2015. Figures prior to this, therefore, relate to statements only. Table 2 in the following link includes the number of new EHC plans during 2014: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/statements-of-sen-and-ehc-plans-england-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/statements-of-sen-and-ehc-plans-england-2018</a>.</p><p>It is important to note that the number of EHC plans and statements of SEN does not include learning difficulty assessments (LDAs). These were previously used in a similar way as an EHC plan, for young people with SEN at a post-16 level, but were replaced by EHC plans from 2015. The last record of LDAs were removed from the system in 2016.</p>
