What is an EHCP?

An Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP) is a legal document. EHCP’s are made for children and young people (age 0-25) who have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) that cannot be met by the support that is already available at their early years setting, school or college within SEND Support through the Torbay SEND Support and Provision – Graduated Response. An EHCP will only be issued for a child or young person following them having had an Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessment. An EHCP describes an individual child or young person’s Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND). It also sets out the support necessary to meet those identified needs which will help them achieve their desired outcomes.
