High Needs Recoupment
We aim to recoup the additional funding for statements of special educational needs for pupils who live out-of-borough, on behalf of schools. The High Needs Recoupment Service takes the hassle out of a complicated system. The service is pay-as-you-go so you can use it only when you need to.
What we can offer
Further to recent school funding reforms, there is no longer a statutory requirement for local authorities to recoup additional funding for provision outlined in statements from other boroughs.
Achieving for Children can recoup funding for pupils with statements of special educational needs who live out-of-borough, directly from the pupil’s home local authority, over the first £6,000 of the value of the statement.
We will provide a schedule of recoupment for agreement by the school and we make payments to schools on a monthly basis.
