What is an Annual Review?
The SEND Code of Practice 2015 tells us that an Annual Review is a yearly review of a child or young person’s EHC Plan which gives all involved with the child or young person, a chance to look at how they are progressing towards their outcomes and longer terms aspirations specified in the EHC Plan. It is also a chance to consider whether these outcomes and supporting targets remain appropriate.
Although it states Annual, it should happen as a minimum every 12 months and there may be situations where this needs to happen more frequently (for example, if the child is under 5 years old or if there have been substantial changes).
