Changes to the delivery of EHCPs
The secretary of state has recently announced short-term modifications to the section of the Children and Families Act regarding Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs).
Some things have not changed, for example annual reviews, appeals and schools admitting children. However, how EHCPs are delivered has temporarily changed. This should not mean any immediate changes to how schools and the Special Educational Needs (SEN) team are working with children and families, but how we deliver our duties will be different.
The Department for Education (DfE) has provided detailed guidance and over this week the services across education, care and health will be working together with the Parent Carer Forum to look at what information we can add to this about how we are managing this in Devon.
