When it has been agreed to issue an EHC Plan the local authority will send parents a final version within 20 weeks of receiving the assessment request. Parents can help the local authority keep to this timescale by providing any recent reports about the child (e.g. from a speech and language therapist or from Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) when the assessment request is made.
Sutton Education, Health & Care Plan process
Support and resourcing for special educational needs in schools and colleges in Sutton
The new code of practice explains that most children with SEN will achieve their outcomes through the arrangements that can be made available to them in schools and colleges without the need for an education, health and care plan (EHCP). Schools and colleges are provided with resources in their delegated budget which they can use to support children and young people with additional and special needs. More information about how they might provide this support is described in their SEN information.
