We would welcome your feedback on our revised (draft) Education, Health and Care Needs Assessment (EHCNA) guidance.
Please take a look at our new guidance and then complete our short survey. Consultation ends 19 October 2018.
The new guidance was written in response to feedback to review the guidance already in use in Cambridgeshire. Feedback from parents, education, social care and health professionals clearly indicated that the process for EHCNA requests had, over time, become overly bureaucratic, outdated and lacking in clarity and transparency. Recent changes in Standard Assessment Test requirements in schools have added a further need to review and update the guidance. In drawing up these guidelines, Cambridgeshire County Council has taken seriously its statutory responsibilities for children and young people with special educational needs and disability. The guidance is written with full regard to the Code of Practice.
Following the consultation we will update www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/localoffer with the information contained in the document taking into account your feedback.
