Our Capital Programme

Our project to develop hundreds of new specialist education places in Suffolk.

In 2018, we reviewed whether there were enough specialist educational places in Suffolk to meet the needs of children and young people with SEND. We called this our SEND Sufficiency Review. The review concluded that we needed more specialist places, and so in January 2019, we started planning how to achieve this. We call this our SEND Sufficiency Plan

As part of this, in 2019 we committed to something called the SEND Capital Programme. With an investment of £45m from Suffolk County Council and the Department for Education, this programme aims to create at least 874 new education placements for children with SEND.
