WHAT IS AN EDUCATION HEALTH CARE PLAN (EHCP)?
When a child’s SEND provision is greater than adjustments made reasonably by the class teacher and school, they may require an EHCP (Education Health Care Plan).
The application for an EHCP is made to the Local Education Authority following discussion with parents, carers, school staff, outside agencies and the pupil. A decision will be made of the provision which is required. Pupils with an EHCP have provision based on the plan which is reviewed in an annual review meeting. As with all SEND provision, there is close communication between staff, parents and child.
