EHC Plan - The Principles:  The EHC Plan is underpinned by a number of key principles:

  • The involvement of children, young people & their families in decision making
  • Improved identification of children & young people's needs
  • Collaboration between professionals from education, health & social care
  • High quality SEND provision
  • Greater choice and control for CYP & their parents over their support
  • Successful preparations for adulthood, independence and employment

The tiles below will take you through the key principles of the EHC Plan.
