Independent special institutions

Section 41 of the Children and Families Act 2014 allows the Secretary of State to publish a list of approved independent educational institutions, independent special schools and post-16 institutions for the purposes of enabling the institution to be the subject of a request for it to be named in an Education, Health and Care plan. Institutions can only be included on the list with their consent.

The list is updated to include approved applicants and remove institutions who have not continued to meet the Section 41 eligibility criteria.

You can view the list of approved independent educational institutions, independent special schools and post-16 institutions on the GOV.UK website here.

The schools listed can be contacted to see if they can accommodate your child.
