Havering’s schools are set to benefit from a £22million boost in funding to create additional spaces for children with special educational needs, the Department for Education (DfE) has revealed.
On Tuesday, May 29, children and families minister Nadhim Zahawi announced Havering will be granted £598,000 from a national pot of £50m to help create innovative new facilities for SEN children.
The scheme will create more special school places in Havering and could help build new specialist facilities to support children with complex needs, such as sensory rooms and playgrounds with specialist equipment.
Ms Zahawi said: “All parents want to send their child to a good local school, one that meets their individual needs and supports them to achieve their full potential, regardless of the challenges they may face.
“This funding will help to create additional school places in Havering, with a clear focus on transforming the experience of education for children with special educational needs or disabilities.”
