An annual review meeting must be held once a year, the purpose of which is to review a child’s or young person’s EHCP . The review of the EHCP should involve the pupil, parents/carers, the school, the Local Authority (LA) and all professionals from other services who are involved.

The Headteacher is responsible for making sure that the annual review meeting is arranged, however this may be delegated to another member of staff.

The focus of the meeting is to monitor and evaluate the continued effectiveness and relevance of the provision set out in the EHCP. This means ensuring that the provision is meeting the child’s/young person’s needs and that the child/young person is making progress.

For children under compulsory school age, the SEN Code of Practice recommends that consideration should be given to informal six monthly reviews of the EHCP; these could be classed as interim reviews.
