Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans contain information about a child or young person’s needs in Education, Health and Social Care.  They are a legal document, meaning that the support set out must be provided by the relevant agency.  If it isn’t, parents can make an appeal to the SEND Tribunal.

From Year 9 onwards, EHC Plans focus on long term life outcomes that will best prepare a young person for adulthood.  We consider outcomes in 4 areas:

  • Good health
  • Education and employment
  • Independent living
  • Friends and relationships

EHC Plans remain in place for as long as a young person needs specialist support in education, up to the age of 25 and are reviewed every year. The review meetings involves parents/carers, the child or young person’s teacher and any other professionals that are involved in supporting them.
