What is an EHCP?

An EHCP or an Education, Health and Care Plan is a legal document that identifies a child’s Special Educational Needs (SEN) and focusses on the support required to meet agreed outcomes. The key difference between a Statement of SEN and an EHCP is that, as well as the educational elements covered in statements, EHCPs also outline the child’s health and social care needs, outcomes and support.
