Implementation meeting

An implementation meeting will take place following the completion of the statutory education, health and care (EHC) assessment and the production of a plan.

The purpose of the meeting is to plan the short term and yearly targets, support and monitoring to enable the child or young person to achieve the outcomes in their EHC Plan.

This meeting should be held within 4 to 6 weeks of the date on which the final EHC Plan was issued.  The Education Health and Care Inclusion Officer will ask the child or young person’s school, college or setting to arrange and organise this meeting and to invite the child, parents, carers or young person along with the independent supporter and the professionals who were involved in the assessment. 

The local authority must then arrange a EHC plan review at least annually or 6 monthly for a child under the age of 5 years.
