EHCP Annual review and information
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
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.

Further information about School Local Offers
There is a statutory duty on schools and further education providers to publish information about their individual local offer.
As you are located within Bradford local authority area or we currently place a child or young person with you, Bradford MDC is required to include a link to your schools local offer information within Bradford’s Local Offer website.
Once your local offer has been developed, is approved by your Governing Body and is published on the school website, it is requested that you provide the local authority with the details of the location of your local offer website page.
School Local Offers (SEN Information Reports) already published on Bradford’s Local Offer website are published here: : click here
We ask that each provider informs the Local Offer Officer of any location web address link changes, websites updates, or changes to document address that are already published on the Local Offer website asap. Please ensure your Schools Local Offer web links
are correct on the link above.
