Why We Review EHCPs & How Often

As children grow their needs change, we have to make sure their EHCP remains useful for them as they get older

Sometimes a child’s special educational needs change as they get older, they might need more or less support.

Services also change with time and there might be new services or support available that wasn’t around when your child’s EHCP was first written.

We have to make sure the original description of your child’s needs is still accurate and make sure that the level of support, and that the nursery, school or college we originally recommended is still right for them.

If your child is under five years old then we’ll review their EHCP every six months. If your child is older then we’ll review it every year.

If you disagree with a decision we make about your child’s educational needs during their plan review you can appeal.
