Purpose of this consultation

We are looking to improve the system for allocating high needs top-up funding to children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan in Cheshire East.

A working group established by the Schools Forum have developed a proposed new model, and we would like your views on this proposal. We held a number of events in June and July 2019 to share the proposals and to consult and gather feedback on the proposals. This survey has been designed to gather further input on the proposals. All feedback will contribute directly to future work, including directly impacting whether the proposals will proceed and the design and implementation of any future model.

Please read through the High Needs Funding Consultation Document (PDF 2.36MB) before answering the questions. It may be useful to keep this open within a separate tab as we will refer to it throughout the survey.
