Funding for early years with additional needs


The government has given its commitment to ensuring that early years provision works as well for children with additional needs as for all children.

In addition to the Early Years Pupil Premium, which supports more disadvantaged children, the government will introduce a new national ‘Disability Access Fund’ to support access for disabled children and ensure there are special educational needs inclusion funds to provide additional support.

The funding announcement was part of the government’s response to the Early Years consultation.
