Changes to the format of the Dorset education, health and care (EHC) plans and to annual reviews 

At the latest Let's Talk event you told us that parents need more help understanding education, health and care (EHC) plans. As a result we've worked with families, professionals and educational settings to design:  
 • a new format for EHC plans
 • new EHC plan progress reviews, which will replace the current format for annual reviews 

View the new EHC plan template and review form

Our next Let's Talk events will take place this month. Dorset's SEND team will be introducing the new format for EHC plans and progress reviews. You can also feedback, discuss the changes and ask any questions. 

Please book a place if you'd like to attend one of these events.

Together, let's improve SEND travel 

We know that the way your child gets to and from school is really important and has a massive impact on your day-to-day life. Many of you have told us that SEND travel needs to improve and we’d like to work with you to do this.
As you may have seen in our December newsletter, we're inviting you to an event next week where you can share your experiences of SEND school transport in Dorset. 
The event is on Tuesday 14 January, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at South Walks House, Dorchester. If you'd like to attend, please book a place.

If you can’t make that date, but would still like to get involved, email Thomas Fowler, Project Manager:
