What is an EHCP and when does an EHCP become final?

A basic overview of an EHCP reveals that it sets out:

  • What the Needs of the student are;
  • What the Outcomes should be; &
  • What Provision must be provided in order to support the identified Needs and Outcomes

The EHCP is initially written as a draft document, which is then sent to the parent and/or young person. It includes any information from any consulted professionals – section K.

The LA will consult with parent(s) / young person regarding their preferred placement and any other appropriate placements. The draft EHCP is also sent to the schools to seek their contribution regarding their ability to meet need.

The draft EHCP only becomes final when either:-

  • all sections of it are agreed; or
  • Where all sections cannot be agreed, once the LA has confirmed it is the final draft. This confirmation allows the parent / young person to begin the process of appealing the decision if they choose to.
