All About EHCPs (Education, Health and Care Plans)
Some children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) require more help and support than a mainstream school, college or nursery would normally provide at the level of SEN support. This is when applying for an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan should be considered.
An EHC plan is a legal document that describes a child or young person’s special educational, health and social care needs, sets out the extra help that will be given to meet those needs, and how this will support the child or young person to achieve what they want to in their life.
