Transfer to Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans

In line with the guidance from Government, there will be a phased approach to move Children and Young People from Statements and Learning Difficulty Assessment’s to Education, Health and Care plans. This is to ensure that good quality Education, Health and Care plans are produced, and that no child or young person is left without the support they need. We have produced a guide with additional information regarding the transfer process – see the “At a Glance Transfer Review” document. 

At the end of February 2015, a letter was sent to the parents of all children and young people with Statements providing information and the detailed timetable for transfer to Education, Health and Care plans. A copy of this letter and all the enclosures are available to download below. We have also produced an guide to transferring children and young people with statements to Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs).

Learning Disability Assessments

Learning Disability Assessments (LDA's) are no longer used in further education.  Anyone who was previously supported through an LDA and has not been transferred on to an EHC can make a request for an EHC needs assessment.
