Relaxing of EHCP requirements is over

During the peak of Covid-19, the government relaxed the legal requirements of schools and the Local Authority to provide all the provision in children and young people’s EHC plans.

This requirement expired on the 31st July and so, when those with an EHC plan return to school or college in September, the provision set out in the plan must be delivered.

However, the relaxing of the timelines around certain parts of the EHC process remain in force until 25th September by which time the government will have decided whether to extend it further.

You can see updates here for to Changes to the law on education, health and care needs assessments and plans due to coronavirus.  

Worried about your son or daughter returning to school?

Do raise any concerns with your child’s school/college as soon as possible.  We suggest you do not leave it until the first day of term - this does not give your school/college any time to prepare.
