County councils are dipping into generic schools grants to manage overspending on special needs education, an umbrella group has found.
In the last two years 21 county councils overspent on their high-needs block grant – central government funding designated for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities, according to research by the County Councils Network.
A total of 22 counties project further overspends of 5.1% in 2018-19, equivalent to £175m between those authorities from 2016 to 2019.
Of these council, the biggest over spender is Hampshire County Council, which is projecting a £25m overspend in the 2016-19 period.
Kent County Council is expecting a £23.6m overspend in the same period, while Surrey is forecasting an overspend of at least £15m.
To cover overspend in this area, counties have been asking the Department for Education or their local schools forum if they can use their generic schools grant.
Eight out of 22 councils have so far made such a request of the DfE ahead of the 2018-19 school year.[ Read more... ]
