EHC plans - we want to hear from you
Nasen is committed to representing the views of its members and so we ask you to contribute your thoughts on the following.
The recent statistical first release from DfE shows a significant increase in the number of new EHC plans being issued; 29.3% across the 2016 calendar year. This also means that the overall combined total of children and young people with EHC plans and statements of SEN has increased by 12.1% from January 2016 to January 2017. We know that there are likely to be many different reasons for this increase but are keen to hear from you about your own experiences in your schools and settings. Please respond to our survey, share your views and add to the collective debate about the embedding reformed SEND system.
