Chris Leslie – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Education

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Chris Leslie on 2016-10-07.

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how existing schools embedded in hospitals for pupils with medical needs will be supported financially if planned changes to the commissioning of alternative provision proceed; and if she will make a statement.

Edward Timpson

We will announce more detail on the funding for alternative provision under the new commissioning arrangements in due course. We are mindful of the diverse range of provision which comes under the banner of alternative provision, and the particular logistical and geographical issues related to hospital schools.
