SEND Services have continued to receive significant demand for EHCPs. This is continuing to impact on our delivery of plans within statutory timescales. As a result of this the service has made three key decisions to improve timeliness of EHCPs and SEND services overall.

 

Educational Psychology Services will not provide traded sessions purchased during term six of this academic year, refunds will be provided. We apologise to all schools affected.

 

Funding for EHCPs will be provided from the 20 week deadline date. Funding will be backdated when the plan and funding is issued through the normal routes, schools will not need to contact us about this it will automatically be applied.

 

Non Statutory Funding is being developed, planned to be ready from the autumn term. Further details to follow
