Visit to be among the first to know what we are premiering at stand C76BETT Update sponsored byUpdate on.SENBESA's latest 2011 Special Educational Needs (SEN) Resourcing in Schools research gives an optimistic picture of the state of the SEN resources market, even in times of economic challenge.. An average primary school has a budget of £690 to spend just on SEN resources (£11.7 million budget for all primary schools) . An average secondary school has something in the region of £1,840 to spend . The Pupil Premium adds another £625 million alone in 2011-12 for disadvantaged pupils, which will increase to £2.5 billion a year by 2014-15 . Many of the pupils affected by 'disadvantage' will receive 'extra' money (over £430 per pupil) to spend in any way that the school feels appropriate. The cuts in the Devolved Formula Capital funding (DFC) will not affect special schools. They will still be receiving twice as much per pupil as other schools - £33.75 per pupil plus £4,000 per school to spend on capital items such as furniture or ICT, both of which can have a major impact . Despite the demise of the Building Schools for the Future programme recent capital funding issued by the Government will be aimed at SEN. £1.3 billion will be given to LAs for 'additional places problems' - primary mostly - and a further £1.4 billion for maintenance problems

Preparing for adulthood Joint working is recommended across all services during the transition from the secondary school setting to adulthood. Services working together for families Local authorities and health services will play a pivotal role in delivering change and the intention is to reduce the bureaucratic burdens on professionals. The paper also aims to empower local professionals to develop collaborative, high quality services. Extending local freedom and flexibility over the use of funding and enabling the voluntary and community sector to take on a greater role in delivering services are also expected to streamline provisions. The need for specialist help will be supported by helping to develop a high quality speech and language therapy workforce and enhancing the educational psychology profession.
