    Hi Patricia,

    When was the annual review held? If a change of placement is agreed the LA has 4 weeks to issue parents with an ‘Amendment Notice’, once received parents then have up to 15 days to respond to the notice (maximum time 4 weeks + 15 days).

    After that time frame a new ammended EHCP should be issued which in this case would not name your setting. At this point also they should come off your roll and it is the LAs responsibility to allocate a suitable placement.

    As with most things EHCP related, it is on the parent(s)/carer(s) to chase this up.

    Hope this helps.
