Education and Health Care Plans (EHCP)

Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP)

Starting in September 2014 pupils are being transferred over from Statements to Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP) following new Government guidance.  The plans are replacing the statements and will stay with the pupil until they are 25 years old (as long as they continue in Education).  This process is being phased in gradually with Years 9, 11 and any school leavers being converted each year until all pupils have an EHC plan.  This process should be completed by July 2018.

The start of this transfer takes place at the Annual Review meeting with the statement being reviewed, aspirations for the pupil being considered and any Health/Social Care provisions in place being discussed.  These meetings will continue to be person centred.  The EHCP’s will be designed to look at the future needs of the pupil and the intention is that they will be more beneficial than the current statement system.
