Reports will be required from the child, parents and school when it is decided to undergo an Education, Health and Care Assessment.
If it is agreed to start a statutory Education, Health and Care assessment, the Local Authority will ask all the professionals involved and the family, to complete all the necessary assessment reports. There is a statutory deadline of 6 weeks for the reports to be completed.
Additional information to support the development of the EHC Plan can also be submitted:
On receipt of all the reports the SEN Officer will meet with the family to go through all of the information and co-develop the EHC Plan.
Schools can ask to be involved in developing the EHC Plan and provide support to families and the SEN Officer.
