Simon Darby and I met with colleagues from the LSC to discuss the shortfall in Post-16 SEN/LLDD funding for Leeds schools...

We have been arguing with the DCSF and the LSC that decisions made in 2000/2001 disadvantaged Leeds because the authority delegated funding for statements to schools in the early 1990's. We calculate that this now means that we are around #2million underfunded for Post-16 SEN/LLDD. We hope that we can address this as the Machinery of Government changes are introduced and commissioning brings a more consistent approach across local authorities.
