What are the Deadlines?
The deadline for Local Authorities to issue an amended EHCP in advance of a primary or secondary transfer is 15th February and 31st March 2022 for children over 16.
What if the Local Authority is Delaying the Process?
If your Local Authority is moving too slowly, you’ll understandably be concerned about ensuring that they meet the phase transfer deadline.
It’s important that the Local Authority work within the set out timeframes so that any amends can be made before your child enters the next stage of their education.
If your Local Authority has failed to send you a final amended EHCP before 15th February and your child is due to start primary or secondary school in September, you should contact the Local Authority immediately.
If you’re unhappy with the response from the Local Authority, or if they fail to reply, our Education Lawyers can help you. They will discuss with you whether Judicial Review proceedings may be appropriate.
