Parents or young people requesting an Education, Health and Care Plan assessment

In most cases schools will ask for a child to be assessed after they’ve:

  • spoken with the child’s parent/carer
  • followed a plan of extra help

If you’re a parent  or a young person (aged over 16 and under 25) you can make a request for an assessment. We recommend that where a child or young person is at an early years provider, school or college you talk to a member of staff first. They will be able to make the referral for them if appropriate.

Please email your Education, Health and Care Assessment, including supporting evidence to: or post to:
