equality act - reasonable adjustment in school - capping the cost

Is it possible for a school to cap a "reasonable adjustment" at say £2K. And then any costs over that are bourne by the parents?

My son's private school has asked me how many hours he will access school for the next 3 years, and I said 22.5 hours a week. The head plans to ask the governors for their approval, or not, of this extra cost. The extra cost is related to his 1-1 (only 15 hours are funded by the council).

I am uncomfortable with having to say now, his hours for the next 3 years. Non disabled pupils don't have to - EA discrimination? My non-disabled child only has to notify a term's notice.

They are also saying that my son can't access holiday club because his 1-1 only works term time.

Not sure if this is posted in the best place for traffic Kanga. MNHQ might suggest a better place. Not sure if SEN would be appropriate.
