ASCL is concerned this consultation was designed before feedback from the SEND Green Paper (GP) consultation has been collated. We don’t feel this is the right focus for initial inquiry; timeliness should be reviewed on the basis of a reformed EHCP process.
We agree that the timeliness of the EHCP process is problematic, but it isn’t the most important issue about this statutory process to address. In fact, timeliness should be the final consideration of a reformed EHCP process, not the first.
