Our Post 16 Centres
Dedicated centres for Post 16 learning with a friendly and safe environment
An education, health and care plan (EHCP) is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through SEN support.
EHCPs identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs to secure the best possible outcomes for them across education, health and social care and, as they get older, prepare them for adulthood.
If, following a period of time at SEN Support stage, your child or young person is still not making the expected progress at school, you can ask for an Education, Health and Care needs assessment.
It is always better if the education provider (usually the SENCO) makes the request as they are more able to ensure all the required information and evidence is contained within the request. However, parents and young people (over 16’s) are also able to make requests themselves directly to the Local Authority.
Forms can be found on the Local Authority website.
