Special educational needs budget in Cambridgeshire faces £11 million black hole
Schools in Cambridgeshire face an £11 million funding shortfall in their special educational needs budget, according to the country's largest education union.
The Government said it had increased funding since 2015, from £5 billion to £6.3 billion, following demonstrations by parents of children with special educational needs in May.
But the National Education Union says this does not take into account the increase in pupils that schools have to provide for, estimating they now face a funding shortfall of at least £1.2 billion..
