Education, Health and Care needs assessment

Your child may need an Education, Health and Care needs assessment if the extra support they are receiving is not helping or they have severe or complex needs.

If the Bracknell Forest Local Authority agrees that your child needs to be assessed then the whole process takes 20 weeks from beginning to end.

We will write an Education, Health and Care Plan for your child. This plan will set out what the school needs to do to help your child further. (These used to be called Statements of Special Educational Needs).

If we decide not to write an Education, Health and Care Plan for your child we will tell you why and how their needs will be met inside or outside the school. We will also tell you how you can appeal if you disagree with this decision.

Your child’s school will be able to give you further information on the assessment process.
