Newcastle LA currently has two EHCP templates. One template is used for 0-16, the other template is used post 16 from year 11 onwards.
Following the Ofsted Inspection, and need for an accelerated improvement plan the LA would like to know if having two separate templates is still beneficial/ preferred or would one 0-25 EHCP be better?
For info - The post 16 EHCP was co-produced with parents and young people and approved by the DfE. The main difference in the two plans is the focus on preparing for Adulthood and independence, with section E outcomes being recorded directly below each area of need.
In order to make improvements to EHC Plans, we first need to make an informed decision on whether we use one or two forms, taking into consideration parental/carer/young people's views.
