The Special Educational Needs Co-ordination Service is responsible for the administration and co-ordination of the process for determining and arranging specialist provision. The process is referred to as Statutory Assessment.

This includes the management of:

  • requests for assessment of special educational needs by schools and parents
  • the production of Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP) to support special educational needs - this is a statutory document describing the needs of the pupil
  • the production of notes instead of a EHCP – this is not a full EHCP but is a note giving useful advice to help ensure that a pupil's needs are met
  • allocation of provision for EHCP pupils, including school placements, support and equipment
  • the annual review of EHCP - this is a statutory requirement

These services are free of charge to parents, carers, schools and other professionals.
