Local provision for local children

Camden seeks to make provision for children and young people in local maintained provision wherever possible. This includes both mainstream and specialist provision, and also includes maintained provision in nearby boroughs.

When considering specialist provision in neighbouring boroughs, parents are advised to consider Camden’s SEN transport policy. Where a child is eligible to receive transport assistance, this will be considered on the basis of the nearest suitable school to home.

Where we cannot meet needs locally, Camden will consider funding independent provision that can meet the child’s needs. In exceptional cases, residential provision will be considered.
