Exception Rules to EHC plans in South Gloucestershire

Exception Rules to EHC plans        in South Gloucestershire

You may or may not have noticed that in July an article was produced by a well-known organisation called Special Needs Jungle (SNJ).

The article was referring to the  “ehcp-assessment-exception-loophole”. 

It was very disappointing to read that South Gloucestershire Council was showing the highest percentage of 92% of ECHP being given exception codes that didn’t meet the criteria above.  

South Glos Parents and Carers immediately made contact with the LA to express our concern but also to find out why this was the case.
