SEND&AP Change Programme: Education Health and Care Plan Template

We told you we’d keep you up to date with what’s happening in the SEND&AP Change Programme.

One of the first steps is the development of a new standardised Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) template to ensure that EHCPs are clear, concise, and deliverable, and will look the same for families wherever they live.

We will be starting to use the template for all new EHC assessments in the Spring term, 2024. We will be asking for feedback from Portsmouth Parent Voice, SENDIASS, schools, families and other professionals.

Frequently asked questions

  • My child is currently going through a new EHC assessment – will my child have the new template?
    Yes, we will be using the new templates from January 2024.
  • What if my child already has an EHCP?
    Nothing will change for your child – the plan will look the same.
  • Will there be a change to the annual review?
    There will not be a change to the annual review template.
