Children without an Education Health and Care Plan

  • If you have a child with SEN (Special Educational Needs), but do not have an EHCP (Education Health Care Plan) then your child will only be eligible for a mainstream school.
  • A school cannot refuse to admit your child because of their special educational needs.
  • You do not have greater priority on the admissions criteria if you have SEN, unless you have an EHCP.
