EHC needs assessment related templates

We're waiting for A McColl to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Luton 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

Dear A McColl

 

I write further to your email dated 25.10.2018 requesting a review of FOI
reference A52289.  Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding
and see requested information below and attached:

 

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.

 

Please find attached a sample of Luton’s key decision making letters with
template/forms in the EHC 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

local authority: these may include assessments from educational

for involvement from the EP service for children who already   have EHC
plans
