EHC needs assessment related templates

The request was successful.

Dear Cornwall 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

Cornwall Council

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI)/Environmental Information
Regulations (EIR) request - Reference FOI-101004031658. In normal
circumstances we will provide a response within 20 working days of
receiving your request. There may be a small number of occasions where we
may need to extend the 20 working day deadline. We will inform you if this
is likely.

Cornwall Council is made up of many different services and additionally,
wholly owned companies who are responsible for areas such as housing and
highways. Your request will be logged by the Central FOI team and in most

progress your request until clarification has been received.

£450. If this is the case we will help you to narrow the request to take
it under any cost limit. In a small number of other cases, a charge may
apply such as with certain environmental information, but we will let you
know if this applies.

We deal with around 2000 FOI/EIR requests for information each year, with
the cost to the Council (not to the customer) ranging between £25 and £450
per request. You may be able to find the information by checking previous
