Education personal budgets


Schools, nurseries and childminders are reopening. See Schools, children and families’ services.

You can ask for an education personal budget if your child has (or you have, if you’re 16 to 25) a draft or final education, health and care plan (EHCP).

Personal budgets can give you more choice. For example, you can ask for some of the education in the EHCP to be provided by someone other than the school.

We may agree a personal budget if:

  • the funding can be separated from the school or college budget
  • there’s no extra cost to us
  • it will help meet the outcomes in the EHCP.

To ask for a personal budget email ISEND Assessment and Planning team.


Or call 01273 336740.

See the escis directory for services you can buy with a personal budget.
