Annual Reviews

Where a child or young person has an EHC plan, it must be reviewed annually by the LA. The first review of the EHC plan must be held within 12 months of the plan being finalised. Subsequent reviews must be held within 12 months of the previous review.

The process the Local Authority must follow when reviewing an EHC plan is set out by law and is described in detail in the SEN and Disability Code of Practice 2015.
