Why do you need an annual review?
The EHC plan annual review is completed 12 months of the date the plan was issued or the date of the previous review. You will meet with local authority, school and all the professionals who were involved in the EHC plan. This is an opportunity to assess the progress of your child since the EHC plan was put in place, consider whether the plan is still needed and discuss any necessary changes to the plan. Circumstances can rapidly change for a child for example if a child is at risk of exclusion. This can force a review to happen earlier than usual. This is an opportunity for parent to negotiate changes to the child plans.
