All About EHC Plans

An education, health and care plan is a legal document which describes of a child / young person’s special educational, health care and social care needs as well as the provision required to support these needs. See more about EHC plans here, including what each section must contain and examples of good practice.

Getting an EHC Plan

If you may need an EHC plan, either the educational setting or the parent of a child or the young people themselves can ask the local authority to consider carrying out an EHC needs assessment. Read more about the process here and see a template letter that a parent or young person can use to ask the local authority to carry out an EHC needs assessment.

Reviews of EHC Plans

An EHC plan must be reviewed at least every year. If needs have changed, or you have concerns about provision or placement you or the educational setting may want to ask for the EHC plan to be reviewed earlier. See more about the annual review process here.

Moving House With An EHC Plan
