    Have you spoken to your local SEND team?

    What sort of reasonable adjustments do you need to make and will they cross the £6000 threshold?

    Will the pupil need access to, for example hospital school, home tuition/learning etc?

    I would imagine this EHCNA is on the grounds of physical disability, look at your local criteria for this, how do you anticipate the pupils needs being met?

    You will need significant input from the medical team when putting the information together and when devising a plan, if the LA agree to assess, with the EP assigned. Whether it’s right or wrong, some LAs will not accept an EHCNA referral without an EP report and some will give top-up equivalent to EHCP funding levels instead via other funding streams, especially if it’s not a “forever” situation (ie pupil may recover).
