Education Health and Care Plans
Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans replaced Statements of Special Educational Need. The EHC Plan, sometimes referred to as a statutory plan, is the legal document which sets out:
- the child/young person's needs
- the outcomes for that child/young person
- the provision needed to meet their needs/outcomes
- the most appropriate educational placement
EHC plans cover the age range 0-25.
The EHC pages of the ESCC website explain how families can request an EHC Needs Assessment.
The majority of children and young people do not require a statutory plan in order to be supported in their educational setting.
