Roll out of Early Years Inclusion Funding to schools

All local authorities are required by the DfE to have an Inclusion Fund for 3 and 4 year olds with SEND who are accessing their early education entitlement. This funding is to promote the inclusion of children with SEND within a pre-5 setting.

Bradford Local Authority allocates Inclusion Funding via the Early Years Inclusion Funding Panel to support eligible 3 and 4 year olds in Private, Voluntary and Independent (PVI) settings and from 1st September 2019 this will now be available for eligible 3 and 4 year olds in schools. Inclusion funding is also available for eligible 2 year olds in schools and PVI settings, but this is non-statutory.
