Responding to an announcement by the Department of Education about an extra £700 million for children with special educational needs, Cllr Anntoinette Bramble, Chair of the Children and Young People Board, said:

"It is great that the Government has acted on the LGA’s call for a significant funding boost for services that support children with special educational needs next year.

"Councils want to ensure every child gets the best education possible and that every parent can choose the sort of education setting they want for their child.

"This funding will help councils meet unprecedented demand for SEND support next year and ensure our most vulnerable children get the support they need."
