More commonly known as July Provision or the July Education Programme is for children diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and or severe to profound Learning Disability. They may be entitled to July Provision if the school in which they are attending is not providing this service for the month of July.
The scheme provides funding for an extended school year for children and is granted when school-based provision is not feasible.
Where an eligible school participates in the programme, an extra month’s education is provided to a child who meets the scheme’s criteria. Where school-based provision is not feasible, 40 hours home-based provision may be granted.
When applying you need to include details and qualifications of proposed tutors and photographic identification. As tuition takes place outside the usual school structure it is important that home tutors are well qualified and vetted.
