Education, health and care plan (EHCP)

If your child’s special educational needs are complex and/or severe, and if they haven't progressed through the graduated support approach, you or your child’s educational setting can request that Shropshire Council considers an education, health and care assessment in order to determine whether or not it's necessary to issue an education, health and care plan (EHCP).

The local area has co-produced a set of EHCP quality assurance standards that have been agreed by the Partnership Board.
