  • I am applying for changes to my child's EHCP in respect of her 1:1 provision. Does anyone have a good example of wording for Part F of the EHCP for full time 1:1?

  • Does anyone have any views what the starting point in weeks is for SEP i.e. speech and language or occupational therapy for a tribunal where independent witness reports support provision much longer than 38 weeks (in relation to Code of Practice 9.55) to meet communication and interaction needs but the tribunal uses a starting point of 38 weeks because it is a school year? note: the child has been home schooled for a year

  • My child’s school is refusing to meet his needs .As part of a now 8 months overdue assessment to update his appalling EHCP an OT assessment took place in March including school observation . The report said he was not currently able to access education , and needed 1to 1 support, different seating in class , and sensory support provision . School have had this information for 3 months , and don’t propose to do anything not even change his seating till September and after the permission of the school governors is given . LA plan writer went long term sick 2 months ago and nobody is answering e mails. This feels illegal as they are not meeting his needs , and LA are so overdue . What action can I take please .

  • My daughter is in mainstream with an EHCP of 32.5. I want her moved into a primary specialist setting. She’s now yr 5. Process was delayed by 2 years due to pandemic. Have been turned down. LA also in email trying to deter me from naming a specialist secondary on her AR which is next week. Despite EP has stated ‘she needs a differentiated curriculum’ and to be ‘educated with like-minded peers’ . And that info appearing on EHCP draft.

    The reasons LA gave were vague and non specific. School is full, levels too high apparently , (even though only emerging y3 with full support) and would impact on efficient education of others. (Found case law on IPSEA)
    Current School support the move.
    Feel that LA acting unlawfully and incompetent re timelines.. so was told I could go to AR with only a working document not a proper draft - I’ve challenged that and working doc has been relabelled and sent as a draft with now obsolete info as per EP report.

    I will exercise my daughter’s right of appeal, but is it only learning levels that are ever considered at tribunals? she has a complex range of medical, soc communication and physical disabilities as well as being at pre key stage levels.

    Is there anything in the Noddy Guide specific to this?

    Also can I name out of county as an alternative?
    Thanks

  • Hi community, am hoping someone can help point me in the right direction. Can a local authority override power of attorney over health and welfare regarding decisions about a SEND adults ongoing care? If they make a decision that the POA does not agree with, what is the appeal procedure? Thank you in advance

  • I am due at Tribunal next week over 1:1. The LA have not engaged at all - no witnesses submitted and zero progress on the working document. The court has ordered the LA to submit this by midday tomorrow. Can I ask for them to be struck out?

  • The school is reducing my daughter's 1:1 provision in September despite it being agreed with the LA that her funding would cover almost full time hours. What can I do over the Summer to ensure that she keeps her support?
