AKO has received a lot of enquiries about EHC Plans. One of the main difficulties seems to be whereas everyone was quite clear about what statements of special educational needs should look like, the situation with EHC Plans is far less defined.
The Department of Education have tried to clarify the situation and we can only hope their work continues. One helpful contribution they have made is to provide and example EHC Plan for a 12 year old child.

This can be found here:

Whilst this is not perfect, it certainly does shed some light on what a plan should look like.
This plan is well worth reading with IPSEA’s excellent checklist which can be found here:
