Education, Health and Care Plans for children and young people

Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP) bring together a range of health, education and social care information about a child, including:

  • Their personality, hopes and dreams
  • Their strengths
  • The areas where they might need extra help to reach their full potential
  • The results that parents and young people wish to see
  • The services that need to make sure it all happens.

The plans can be in place until the child reaches 25-years-old.

By 1 April 2018, EHCPs in Birmingham will replace:

  • Statements of Special Educational Needs for children in school
  • Learning Difficulty Assessments / Learning Support Plans for young people who were over 16.

All children who currently have Statements of Special Educational Needs will be transferred to education, health and care plans on a phased basis.
