I am currently supporting a LA, piloting universal banded funding across Mainstream and Special Schools EHCP pupils. From feedback received from participating schools, we are considering revising the format of the EHCP documentation.
We would like to some clarity on the following proposals:
• Are there any legal implications for adding ‘Primary’ and ‘Secondary Need’ type into the front page of an EHCP?
• Are there any legal implications for adding the agreed ‘Banding Level’ into the front page of an EHCP?
• Alternative to the above, would there be any legal implications for adding ‘Banded Funding’ (and then listing the allocated banding, e.g. “Banded funding: SEMH – band 2”) onto the front page of an EHCP?
I hope this makes sense and am grateful for any advice on this.
