Improving facilities for children with SEND

We applied for funding from the government's Special Provision Capital Fund to improve the quality of educational facilities for children and young people with education, health and care plans (EHC) for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND,).


We met with schools to discuss where and how best to invest Herefordshire's allocation from the fund to improve SEND provision and the projects we listed in our initial DfE template were the outcome of these discussions.

We then asked parents and carers of children and young people with SEND and other stakeholders for views on our proposed projects.
