When requesting a particular school or college within an EHC plan, there are very specific duties that must be undertaken by Local Authorities and other institutions and bodies who have to have a duty to the SEND Code of Practice 0-25.

The link below gives to direct access to the relevant chapter in the SEND Code of Practice 2015 and we would encourage you to be aware of these duties if you are undertaking an EHC Plan Assessment process.

SEND Code of Practice - Requesting a particular setting in an EHC Plan

Parents, Carers and Young People also need to be aware that once a draft EHC Plan has been issued, you have only 15 days to review the plan and make any representations including making a request for a particular school or college.
