Children with an existing Statement of SEN

From 1st September 2014 existing Statements of SEN will stand until converted into EHC Plans. That will happen when a significant change is required to the Statement or at the end of a Key Stage, whichever comes sooner. There will be a three year period for converting existing Statements into EHC Plans. If a child is expected to leave education within the next three years, then the Local Authority will contact parents about ceasing to maintain the statement at the time he/she leaves education.
