If it is agreed that a Statutory Education, Health and Care Plan should be issued then the Draft EHCP will be sent to parents/carers/young person with the appendices/ information which was gathered during the EHC Needs Assessment.

The letter sent with the documents outlines that the parents/carers/young person will be given 15 days to give their views on the content of the document and their preference of setting. Many parents choose to give their views and preferences during the planned Draft EHCP Meeting.

Professionals from education, health and social care which currently work with the child/ young person are also sent the Draft EHCP and are invited to send their views to the SEN Assessment Coordinator.
