For those children who are transferring into a new stage of education from September 2018, parents should receive the final EHC plan naming the placement for September 2018 by 15 February 2018.
If your child has an EHC Plan and is moving on to a new phase of education at the end of this school year, then the Local Authority must amend the EHC Plan by 15 February 2018 to name the school that your child currently attends but also the school that he/she will attend from September 2018. The final amended EHC Plan must be issued by 15 February 2018 so by now you should have received a draft amended EHC Plan to ensure that a final EHC plan is issued by that deadline.
