I’m shocked! mental health is one of the 4 domains – Social emotional and mental health – and if they’re in a hospital school at age 16/17 their problems are likely to be sustained and ongoing! And a plan CAN be ended early if it’s no longer required! It’s disgusting that children in this type of crisis are not supported by their local authorities.
You’ll have to do an appeal like you do normally (its the parents that have to appeal but you can support). Unfortunately this takes quite a while.
Is it maybe because the LA have run out of money until April? The assessment process itself, I was told by one of commissioners locally, is about £10,000 before the plan is finalised and an annual amount put on it.
