Education Health Care (EHC) Plans


Most children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) will have their needs met by their local, mainstream early years’ setting, school or college. For children and young people with complex needs that cannot be met by the support put in place by their educational setting, however, an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan may be required. 

Information on how the system for supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities is changing. The new Education Health and Care Needs Assessment (EHCNA) process and plan is available in the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice and the SEND Guide for Parents and Carers.

There are also guides for young people produced by the Council for Disabled Children. EHCP Journeys - parent stories and feedback.

At present our SAT (Statutory Assessment Team) are facing some significant staffing challenges. Find out more...
