Education and Health Care Plans

The Government reformed the way we work together to support children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

The majority of children and young people with SEN or disabilities will have their needs met within local mainstream early years settings, schools or colleges. A small number of children and young people may require an Education Health & Care needs assessment in order for the local authority to decide whether it is necessary for it to make provision in accordance with an Education Health & Care Plan (previously known as statements).

The purpose of an EHC plan is to make special educational provision to meet the special educational needs of the child or young person, to secure the best possible outcomes for them across education, health & social care and, as they get older prepare them for adulthood.
