EFA Section 41 Approved List
Approved Independent Educational Institutions
For some children and young people there may be times when their needs cannot be met by a local mainstream provider and a more specialist provider may be more appropriate.
Section 41 of the Childrens 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. A factsheet has been produced by the Education Funding Agency (EFA) which gives details of what must apply for providers to be included on the list which you can download below.
To help you identify the most appropriate specialist provider an approved provider list has been put together and is updated termly. You can access the list from the gov uk website using the link below.
