The Deputy Director, Learning agreed the
contents of a business case in respect of a child or young person
with complex needs and the individual costs exceed
Placement in the Authority’s own SILC Provision, Partnership Settings and Mainstream School Settings has been considered and explored. Following consultation, none of these provisions are able to meet the needs of the child/young person thus requiring the local authority to seek provision elsewhere. The authority has a statutory duty to make provision for this child who has an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP).
The cost of this placement is approximately £108,000 per annum.
It is considered in the public interest that information contained in the business case is exempt from publication as it relates to a vulnerable child or young person within the City and the actions taken are to enable that person to receive their statutory entitlement to a minimum of 25 hours education as well as reasons for safeguarding.
