Review of an education health and care plan
Every year, an EHC plan must be reviewed for children. This ensures that the provision in place is still meeting the child’s specific needs. An EHC plan may have different elements than the statutory requirements. It is important that parents attend the review meeting to contribute their views and ideas. Parents can bring their support person or invite SENDIASS. A review meeting should also include a parent’s representative.
A child’s EHC plan must be reviewed by the local authority at least once a year. The review will be a chance to update the plan and see how the child has progressed. The local authority must also give parents 15 days to express their views on the proposed changes. Parents may be able to express their preference for a different school or change their child’s placement after the annual review. However, parents should be aware that this process can be difficult.
An Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) is a legal document that requires public schools to support children with special educational needs. Children with SEN are eligible to receive a special education grant, but they may also need additional support and assistance from the school. Parents may find themselves in a dispute with their child’s school over whether they are receiving the appropriate amount of support. To help navigate this process, here are some tips.
Its purpose of a review
The SEND Code of Practice sets out the process for reviewing an education health and care plan. The review must focus on the child’s progress towards the plan’s goals, as well as the current support that is being provided for that child. The review meeting must be held annually, and the LA can request that schools hold one yearly. A review should be done in accordance with the child’s capacity to give consent and confidentiality must be respected.
A review of an education health and care plan will occur formally once a year, with reviews occurring every three to five months for children under five. The process of reviewing an EHC plan should take into account the faster growth that takes place during the early years. Early annual reviews encourage the child or young person to voice their views about the plan and are sometimes referred to as ‘additional reviews’.
