Transition Plan

The Children and Families Act 2014 (part 3) introduced a number of changes to the system for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities and their families.

One of the main changes is that statements of special educational need (statements) and learning difficulty assessments (LDAs) are being replaced by Education, Health and Care plans (EHC plans).

Children and young people with statements must transfer to the new system by 1st April 2018.

The downloadable document - Moving Forward 'A Transition Guarantee for Stockton' explains how: Stockton Borough Council successfully achieved the transfer of all statements within the Government's set time period.
