‘Every Child and Young Person in the Rother Valley Matters’
All children/young people who currently have a Statement of Special Educational Needs will have this converted to an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The current Statutory Assessment process, which informs the writing of a Statement of SEN for a child/young person, focuses primarily on educational needs. The new EHC Plan is the result of a coordinated assessment and is shaped by parents, professionals and, where relevant, the young person. The plan will focus on positive outcomes that will support the family in their daily life.
The EHCP aims to ensure services for each individual work closer together to provide co-ordinated support across all areas of a child or young person’s life. It is drawn up by the local authority after an Education, Health and Care Needs Assessment of the child or young person has determined that a plan is necessary and after consultation with relevant partner agencies.
