When an application for an Education, Health and Care Needs Assessment has been agreed parent/carers and the young person will be notified of their SEN Assessment Coordinator and details of how to contact them if they have any questions. The SEN Assessment Coordinator is a member of the SEN Team or Preparing for Adulthood Team.


Once the Education, Health and Care Plan Needs Assessment is completed the SEN Assessment Coordinator will collate the information to produce an ‘Initial Draft’.

Within the Birth to 25 Integrated Service/Collaboration there are two teams of SEN Assessment Coordinators. The Special Educational Needs (SEN) Team process Education, Health and Care plans for pupils in Year 10 and under. The Preparing for Adulthood (PfA) SEN Team process Education, Health and Care plans for pupils in Year 11 and up to the age of 25.
