My Support Plan

My Support Plan

My Support Plan is a strategy used nationally when a young person has complex needs


•It provides a more coordinated, family centred and personalised planning approach

•It demonstrates a graduated response to SEN

•It demonstrates accountability for notional SEN funding;


So why do an MSP

•It is part of the ‘graduated response’ outlined in the COP and required by Ofsted;

•It provides a joined up way of meeting complex SEND needs;

•It helps you gather the evidence you need should you need to request an EHCA at a later date;

•It demonstrates accountability for Element 1 and 2 funding - EHCPs will only be issued if you can demonstrate this;


Who should have a MSP?

Children at School Support who  :

•Have complex needs

•Are making poor progress based on the School Progress grid

•Have external agencies involved

•Require significant individual input to meet their needs

•Are very vulnerable on transition
