Freedom of Information Request

Timeliness of Local Authority Annual Reviews of EHCP's

Received: 24 October 2019

According to Part 3, s44 of the 2014 Children & Families Act, local authorities must review Education, Health & Care Plans (EHCPs) at least annually.
As part of this annual review, local authorities must decide whether to maintain, amend, or cease to maintain the EHCP. The local authority must notify parents or the young person of their decision within four weeks of the review meeting, and they must notify them of their right to appeal matters within the EHCP that arise from this decision.
I would be grateful if you could provide me with the following information:
* The number of EHCP annual reviews completed by the local authority in 2018
* The number of EHCP annual reviews that were not completed by the local authority in 2018
* The number of EHCP annual reviews completed by the local authority from 1st January 2019 to 1st October 2019
* The number of EHCP annual reviews due for completion by the local authority between 1st January 2019 and 31st October 2019, but which have not been completed
* The number of EHCP annual reviews that currently remain incomplete at least 6 months after the last review meeting
* The number of EHCP annual reviews that currently remain incomplete at least 12 months after the last review meeting
* The number of EHCP annual reviews that currently remain incomplete at least 24 months after the last review meeting
For these requests, the definition of 'complete' is successful completion of all local authority duties laid out in paragraphs 20 and 21 of the 2014 Special Educational Needs & Disability Regulations
