What is an Annual EHCP Review?The Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) has replaced the Statement of Special Needs. The EHCP is a Local Authority managed document, where the school captures the views of those engaged with the individual child and makes recommendations. The Local Authority has the 'ownership' of the EHCP and not the school. Click here for more information on EHCPs from Hertfordshire Local AuthorityEach year, an annual review of the EHCP takes place. These take place for St Luke's pupils here at the school. They are an informal meeting to capture the views of parents/carers, the child and professionals working with the pupil. For some EHCP review meetings, there will be several people contributing to the plan, for others, it will be a simple updating of information.At St Luke's, your child's teacher(s) will have contributed to information about the EHCP and areas of development mapped against his/her EHCP Outcomes.At the meeting, Rosemary Barker will lead parents through the process. The class teacher will not be in attendance, but teaching their class.Each school may have different procedures and, depending on their age, progress in learning or transitional time to another phase of education, there will be different people attending the meeting.At St Luke's, we seek to gather views and relevant reports in advance of the meeting, giving families the opportunity to read through these before meeting together to make decisions on the recommendations to the Local Authority about what should be updated.
