Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP)

EHC Plans

An education, health and care (EHC) plan is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through special educational needs support.

EHC plans identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs.

Health professionals are under a statutory duty to support the EHCP process and this includes involvement in annual reviews.

The EHC Hub

The Education, Health and Care (EHC) Hub is an online case management system which manages requests for EHC plans and the annual reviews of these plans.

The EHC Hub gives you greater control and flexibility to view updates, and comment on your child’s EHCP.

For more information including guides on using the Hub visit the The EHC Hub page.

EHCP Annual Reviews

Your EHCP Annual Review is an important time for you, your child, and key professionals to review your child’s EHCP.

Remember that you and your child can view a copy of their EHCP before the review. This is helpful to remind you what is included on it, and can help you to think about any questions that you may want to ask.

How did we do? Let us know if the review went well and what we can improve on by completing the EHCP Annual Review Feedback form. It takes about five minutes to complete.
