Brent's Special Provision Capital Fund Plan

Local authorities must ensure there are sufficient good school places for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). 

Brent has been given £2.89 million of funding from the government between 2018 and 2021 to create new school places and improve existing facilities for children and young people with SEND, in consultation with parents and providers. 

This funding can be invested in mainstream schools and academies, special units, special schools, early years settings and further education colleges, or to make other provision for children and young people aged from 0 to 25.

We have published a short plan that sets out how we intend to invest our allocation. The plan will be developed and updated annually as new needs emerged. If you have any comments and views about our proposals please email Bhavna Bilimoria, Inclusion Service Development Manager at
