Issuing an EHCP
Education, health and care (EHC) plans have replaced statements of special educational needs (SEN). Learn more about EHC plans.
If you or your school have requested an EHC needs assessment
If we have agreed to proceed with a needs assessment for an EHC plan, an SEN Team Planning Coordinator will draft your EHC plan. A panel will decide if this should become a legal EHC plan.
What information will they need to write my plan?
They will ask for information from:
- your family
- your school
- the professionals who support you
They will need to know what you like or don't like and what your hopes are for the future.
You will have many opportunities to influence the content of the plan.
