If a child or young person has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) the Local Authority (LA) must review the EHCP at least once a year.

The Review must focus on progress towards achieving the outcomes or goals set out in their EHCP and:

  • From year 9 focus on preparing for adulthood
  • For children under 5 the review should take place every 3-6 months

Reviews must take into account the views, wishes and feelings of children, young people and parents. If there is concern about progress the review may be brought forward.
