Your LA will need to ‘transition’ your Statement over to an EHC plan. There is a particular process they must follow which is set out in IPSEA’s transition timeline. This must involve an EHC needs assessment.

All transitions should already have started. This means you can complain to your LA about the fact that they haven’t yet started this process. Check our page on what will happen to your Statement after the transition deadline to find out whether you should push for transition straight away or if you can simply keep the Statement for the time being.
