SEN support always available in education settings 

All education settings are required by law to help children with special educational needs (SEN), including those who do not have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

Mainstream schools get extra money to support for children with SEN. This can be up to £6000 for each SEN child per year. In most cases this funding will ensure the school can give your child all the necessary help. Early years settings and colleges have different funding arrangements. But they must also show that they are supporting children and young people with SEN using their own resources.

A very small number of children may need more help. This is only for children who have the most significant and long term needs and is around two per cent of the total school population.
