The ‘Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 0-25’, which provides statutory guidance on Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014, includes references to the funding arrangements for children with special educational needs (SEN).

More detailed guidance on the funding arrangements for children with SEN is issued by the education funding agency from time to time. Recent operational guidance was published in July 2014 and last updated in December 2014: ‘Schools Revenue Funding 2015-2016: Operational Guidance Version 4’. [1]
