FOI Request - EHC Plans
I am looking at and have been talking to parents of children with special educational needs and disabilities.
I have had various timelines and calls from parents about how an EHC timeline comes together.
How long does the process of EHC plans usually take from initial application to granting?
What was the waiting time in February 2020 and now in February 2021?
What is the current waiting time?
Can you provide a month-by-month breakdown of waiting times from February 2020 and February 2021?
In Scotland we do not have EHC plans as such. This information is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Information Not Held.

Planning is linked to staged intervention.
The nearest we have is a Co-ordinated Support Plan –It is referenced in the link above.
