What is an 'Education, Health and Care Plan'?

Statements of Special Educational Needs are being replaced by Education, Health and Care plans (EHC) for children and young people with the most complex needs from September 2014. The creation and delivery of these plans will be led by the local authority with schools developing and reviewing these with parents. Children with existing statements will transfer to the new system within three years through a ‘transition review’ such as at the end of Year 6 ready for secondary school.
