The Government is extending the maximum timescale for transferring statements to EHC Plans from 16 to 20 weeks. They are also arranging further support to help local authorities improve their implementation of the process.
Edward Timpson, the Minister of State for Children and Families, announced these changes this week in a letter to local authorities. You can read the letter below.
If your child’s statement has recently been transferred to an EHC Plan, or you will be going through the process soon, please do feedback to us about your experience.
Don’t forget: If you have any questions about the transfer process from statements to EHC Plans, or the new SEN system in general, contact the Afasic Helpline
