Educational Health Care Plan Assessments


The school will request a statutory assessment from the LA when, despite an individualised programme of sustained intervention within the SEN Support in School, the child remains a significant cause for concern. A Statutory assessment may also be requested by a parent or outside agency. The school will have the following information available:

  • The action followed with respect to SEN Support in School
  • The pupil’s Learning Plans
  • Records and outcomes of regular reviews undertaken
  • Information on the pupil’s health and relevant medical history
  • English/Maths attainments in relation to age related expectations
  • Other relevant assessments and reports from specialists
  • The views of the parents
  • Where possible the view of the child (One-page profile)
  • Social services/Educational Welfare Services reports
  • Any other involvement by professionals


An Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) will normally be provided where, after a Statutory Assessment, the LA considers the child requires provision beyond what the school can offer.

An EHCP will include details of learning objectives for the child. These are used to develop targets that are:

  • Matched to the longer-term objectives set in the EHCP
  • Of shorter term
  • Established through parental/pupil consultation along with EHCCO (Education Health Care Commissioning Officer) and SEN Panel
  • Set out in a Learning Plan
  • Implemented in the classroom
  • Delivered by the class teacher with appropriate additional support where specified

EHCPs must be reviewed annually. The LA will inform the Head teacher at the beginning of each school term of the pupils requiring reviews.
