Each pupil has an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) which is reviewed annually or six monthly if a pupil is under 5 years of age. The teacher’s EHC3 Form outlines the pupil’s progress made towards the objectives on the EHCP. This is supported by reports from therapists, the school Medical Officer and, if appropriate, the Educational Psychologist. A pupil’s EHCP may be revised at this time if his/her needs have changed. Parents/carers can call a review meeting at any stage throughout the year.
There are occasions when parents/carers, teaching or therapy staff feel that the needs of a pupil would be better served by a transfer to either a mainstream school or to a different Special School. A review meeting will then be held, so that parents/carers and staff can exchange information and come to an informed decision about the best placement for the pupil, and, if necessary, plan a smooth transition to the new school.
