From 3rd April 2018, parent carers and young people will have new rights to appeal decisions about their Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs).
In line with Schedule 2 of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 all local areas in England are required to publish details in their local offers for ‘notifying parents and young people of their right to appeal a decision of the local authority to the Tribunal’ and this includes their extended rights as part of the single route of redress national trial.
There is more information about appeals and mediation on the EHCP page of the SEND Local Offer website – http://devon.cc/ehcplans
