Bristol and South West EHCP Statistics for 20 Week Assessment Deadline

Bristol and South West EHCP Statistics

Bristol and South West EHCP Statistics

It’s not been a good year for Bristol Send, especially with the city’s EHCP Statistics. Coinciding with a day of action across the country to protest against Send funding in England’s schools, the Department For Education, released the annual statistics and analysis for special educational needs (Send) and education, health and care (EHC) plans.

It’s not good news for Bristol, coming almost last place for Local Authorities failing to administrate the ECHP process in the city within the 20 weeks statutory time frame.

The statistics above include all EHCPs processed, even the ones that are considered ‘exception’ cases – where the LA may miss the deadline due to issues like the school summer holidays. However, even with the exception cases removed, the statistic was the same 24.4 per cent.

Bristol was only beaten to last place by Devon, whose figures are indicative of a crisis situation which saw the removal of funded non-statutory plans affecting 800 children.
