Personal Budgets – Education

Requests for educational personal budgets are assessed on an individual basis by the SEN Local Authority Team. Requests in the first instance will be reviewed by the Children’s Commissioning Manager and the SEN Team Manager.

Not all requests for personal budgets can be approved and the Local Authority will provide specific details in writing on an individual case by case basis for any personal budget requests that are turned down.

The schools Notional Budget commonly known as “Element 2” funding will only be available as part of a personal budget following discussion and full agreement of the Head Teacher. Any agreement for a personal budget for “top up funding” which subsequently results in a direct payment must be agreed from the Head Teacher for any of the services to be delivered on their premises.
