Children's Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP) | FACE Toolsets

A suite of integrated tools facilitating a clear, structured and personalised process for children and young people with special educational needs in the EHC process.

The FACE Child & Young Person's Education, Health and Care (EHC) Toolset has been developed in collaboration with several local authorities, to guide professionals through the EHC process and ensure evidence is collected to support decision-making. The tools cover all areas of consideration as recommended within the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice.

Compliant with legislation

The EHC tools have been developed in accordance with the requirements of the Children & Families Act 2014, gathering all required information in the appropriate format and sections.

Supports EHC process

The tools support the entire end-to-end EHC process and can integrate with Formulate to calculate accurate education bandings and personal budgets.

Simplifies the process

All EHC tools have been developed to support the principle of ‘asking a question once’, and have been designed to enable copy forward of information from the initial request for an assessment, through to the EHC Plan and Review.

Supports multi-agency working

The tools have been developed with education, health care and social care practitioners, offering seamless integration to deliver better outcomes for all.
