EHCP Annual Reviews

Annual Reviews

If you or your child has an EHC plan, the local authority (LA) must review it at least yearly.  Following this annual review the LA makes one of three decisions:

  • to maintain the EHC plan and not make any changes
  • to amend the EHC plan
  • to cease to maintain the EHC plan

You will be sent a copy of this decision. If you don't agree with the LA decision, you can appeal to the SEND tribunal. If the local authority decides to amend the plan they must start the process of amending it straight away.

The Local Offer

There is more information about annual reviews on the Local Offer, including local guidance, a checklist for the paperwork which needs to be submitted, and example annual reviews.
