The final EHCP
Once the final EHCP has been produced, your child or young person is legally entitled to the provision set out in the plan.
If you requested a particular school or college to be named then they should appear in the final plan. The institution named must then admit the child or young person and put the educational provision specified in the EHCP into place.
The final plan must be issued within a maximum of 20 weeks from the request for an EHC needs assessment.
If you don't receive your final plan within this time frame, you have the right to complain.
If you're not happy with the content of the EHCP
Generally, parents who have been involved throughout the EHC assessment and EHCP development process will be happy with the final plan. If you’re not however, it’s always good to speak to your EHC Coordinator and explain your thoughts, and to speak to your child’s SENCo to get their thoughts about it.
You have the right to appeal or pursue mediation as a way of resolving disagreements about any of the sections of the EHCP. Contact SENDIASS if you'd like more information.
