It’s never too late – get your first, second or booster dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at local walk-in clinics.
Legally, we must review the EHC plan every year. This is set out in the Code of Practice.
In Early Years, EHC plans are reviewed every 3 to 6 (Code of Practice 9.178).
The review may look different during key transitions. Examples include a Year 6 Transition Review before secondary, and a Year 11 Transition Review before post-16 education.
At the Annual Review, we must check the entire EHC plan - not just educational targets and provision. It can also be a chance for parents and young people to request changes.
EHC plans are not expected to need frequent changes and updates (CoP 9.193). If they do require amending, evidence should be given to support this.
We may refuse a request for a reassessment if it’s been less than six months since the last EHC review, or believe it unnecessary. For example, because we consider the child or young person’s needs have not changed.
A parent can ask a child/young person’s school for an informal review at any time. This can be an opportunity to discuss:
This will take the form of a person-centred review.
