What is DLP

Developing Local Provision (DLP) is a key part of the SEND improvement programme in Birmingham.

It is a two year project which aims to, track, monitor and improve progress and outcomes for children and young people with additional needs or Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in mainstream schools across the city.

Additional funding over 2 years, has been provided to enable schools to work together to proactively identify the needs of children and young people across partnerships of schools and provide resources and support required to meet those needs earlier.

Schools can share or buy in resources which help to meet the needs of children with additional needs in their school. For example, speech and language therapists support groups of children, train staff in speech therapy and supply speech and language programmes across the partnership of schools.
