CONSISTENTLY missing the deadlines on EHCPs can have a huge impact on families.

Parents rely on these to ensure their child/children get the appropriate support.

It can mean that a child is not found a place in a suitable educational setting, this can impact on the whole family and can affect the rest of a child’s life.

It is a challenge for the authority but a challenge that needs to be met, we should not fail these vulnerable children and their families.

I hear regularly about families who are at their wits end struggling without the necessary support.
