What does an EHCP include?

The SEND Code of Practice says that EHCP should:

Every EHCP must include at least 12 sections, but each local authority can decide how to set these out.

The sections are:

A: The views, interests and aspirations of you and the child or the young person.

B: The child’s or young person’s special educational needs.

C: Health needs related to their SEN or to a disability.

D: Social care needs related to their SEN or to a disability.

E: Planned outcomes for the child or young person.

F: Special educational provision, what is to be provided. Provision must be specified, very clear, for each and every need shown in section B.

G: Any reasonable health provision required that is related to their SEN or to a disability.

H1: Any social care provision that must be made for the child or young person under 18 in line with the chronically sick and disabled person’s act 1970

H2: Any other reasonable social care provision required that is related to their SEN or to a disability.

I: The name and type of the school, maintained nursery school, post-16 institution or other institution to be attended.

J: Details of how any personal budget will support particular out comes and the provision it will be used for.

K: The advice and information gathered during the EHC needs assessment must be attached in the appendices. There should be a list of advice and information.

Where the child or young person is in or beyond year 9, the EHCP must also include the provision required by your child or young person to help prepare for adulthood and independent living.

You can read the full list of what must be included in each section in the SEND Code of Practice sections 9.62 and 9.63.
