EHC needs assessment related templates

A McColl made this Freedom of Information request to Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council as part of a batch sent to 26 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council,

The Education Health and Care assessment process involves the local authority (SEN department) asking for and securing advice and information from agencies on the child or young person's needs and what provision may be required to meet those needs and outcomes. Paragraph 9.49 of the SEN Code of Practice explains what advice and information must be sought and who from. Agencies must respond within 6 weeks of the request.

1. Please provide a blank request form template or templates used for requesting advice and information from agencies as part of the EHC assessment process.
2. Please provide a copy of service agreements with agencies. If these cannot be disclosed in whole, I would like to see the information on any recommended phrasing for EHCP assessment reports where requested by the local authority: these may include assessments from educational psychology, social care, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, CAMHS etc. This is not an exhaustive list.

Please contact me if you require any clarification.

Yours faithfully,

A McColl
