Since September 2014, Statements of Special Educational Needs are being replaced by Education Health Care Plans (EHC Plans).  

An education, health and care (EHC) plan is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through special educational needs support at educational settings. 

EHC plans identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs. 

Please feel free to explore this section to get more detailed information about EHC Plans such as what is it for, who does need an EHC Plan, how to request it, and what to expect during the process of getting an EHC Plan or after you have obtained one.  

If you have any further queries about EHC Plans, please do not hesitate to contact us.’
