EHCPs in Cambridgeshire

Education, Health and Care Plans are replacing Statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments and are for children and young people with more severe/complex needs and disabilities. 

EHCPs bring together your child’s learning, health and social care needs in one plan. They can continue until a young person is aged 25 but only if they stay in further education or training.

The transfer of statements to EHCPs is being phased over three years and is due to be completed by 2018. View the Cambridgeshire timetable for when the transfers will take place.

EHCP Annual Reviews

If your child or young person has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), it should be reviewed every year at least.

To help parents and young people understand the reviewprocess, Council for Disabled Children has produced an Annual Review Factsheet, step-by-step timeline and guidance notes for experienced Independent Supporters who may support a parent or young people with an Annual Review.
