Who is responsible for the transfer review

The responsibility for the transfer review and for producing the final EHC plan rests with the local authority and this cannot be delegated to schools or colleges. Local authorities can reasonably ask education providers to make a significant contribution to the preparation of an EHC plan as part of the transfer process, including providing new advice as part of the assessment, and where the transfer review meeting takes the place of the annual review meeting for a child's statement by arranging and holding it.
