Use of resources in special schools

30 Sep 2010 - 10:00am

Our preliminary analysis of Section 52 statements suggested that special schools making similar provision for pupils with similarneeds may be funded at significantly different levels, between and even within authorities. In order to find out more about these differences, we sought to answer and find examples of good practice in relation to the question: ‘Are schools and councils using resources well to meet the needs of pupils in special schools in Wales?’

We concluded that while special schools generally make good use of available funds, many councils do not reflect the changed context in which special schools operate in
their funding and support arrangements.
