11. What is an EHCP and who can request one for my child?


  • EHCP stands for Education and Health Care Plan.
  • The purpose of an EHCP is to make special educational provision to meet the needs of a child or young person, to secure improved outcomes for him/her across education, health and social care.
  • An ECHP will contain 

- the views and aspirations of you and your child

- a full description of his/her special educational needs and any health and social care needs

- established outcomes for your child's progress

 - the provision required and how education, health and social care will work together to meet your child's need and support the achievement of the agreed outcomes.
