Phin Silberrad made this Freedom of Information request to Lincolnshire County Council

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 successful.

Dear Lincolnshire County Council,

The Education Health and Care assessment process involves the local authority (the 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 says 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 when 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 am interested in 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 do not hesitate to to contact me if you would like anything clarified.

Yours faithfully,

P. Silberrad (Ms)

FOI, Lincolnshire County Council
