What goes into an Education, Health and Care Plan?
An EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) contains 12 different sections labelled A-K, as follows:
A: Views, interests and aspirations of the child or young person and his or her parents
B: Special educational needs
C: Health needs related to their SEN or to a disability
D: Social care needs related to their SEN or to a disability
F: Special educational provision required
G: Any health provision required that is related to their SEN or to a disability
H1: Social care provision that must be made for your child or young person under 18 resulting from section 2 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970
H2: Any other social care provision required that is related to their SEN or to a disability
I: Placement: the name and type of school
J: Details of any personal budget
K: The advice and information gathered during the EHC needs assessment
Where the child or young person is in or beyond year 9, the EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) must also include the provision required by your child or young person to help prepare for adulthood and independent living.
