This is the total number of children and young people (aged 0-25) with statements of Special Education Needs (SEN) assessed for a new Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan and a decision to issue an EHC plan was made, expressed as a percentage of children and young people (aged 0-25) with statements of SEN. Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans for children and young people aged up to 25 were introduced on 1 September 2014 as part of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) provisions in the Children and Families Act 2014. However, the legal test of when a child or young person requires an EHC plan remains the same as that for a statement under the Education Act 1996. Therefore, it is expected that all those who have a statement and who would have continued to have one under the current system, will be transferred to an EHC plan no-one should lose their statement and not have it replaced with an EHC plan simply because the system is changing. National and regional totals and total SEN across Local Authorities have been rounded to the nearest 5. Percentages are rounded to the nearest 0.1. There may be discrepancies between totals and the sum of constituent parts. Where there were one or two children or young people in an area these have been supressed.
