Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) are legal documents which describe how the special education, health or social care needs of a child or young person (aged 0-25) will be met. These documents are designed in partnership with families and young people so they reflect the support needed for a child or young person to achieve their own ambitions and aspirations.  

Not all children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) will need an EHCP. To understand whether an EHCP would be helpful for a particular child or young person, the local authority will carry out an assessment.

If this assessment shows that an EHCP is not required, this will be because the local authority believes a child or young person's needs can be met with support that already exists within mainstream settings.
