Education direct payments

Let’s talk about education direct payments in the UK. So, what are they exactly? Well, they’re payments made by the local education authority to parents or guardians of children with special educational needs (SEN).

Now, the cool thing about these payments is that parents can use them to get some extra help for their kids. You know, things like hiring a tutor or getting specialized equipment – all to support their child’s education.

The main idea behind education direct payments is to give parents more say in their child’s support. After all, who knows their little one better than mom and dad? It’s all about tailoring the support to meet the specific needs of the child.

But hey, it’s not a free-for-all. To be eligible for an education direct payment, the child must have an education, health, and care (EHC) plan. This plan outlines their special educational needs and the kind of support they require.
