Ds - 14 has been given an EHCP. He was given a statement while in school and although I withdrew him from school after numerous issues I have always maintained it. It has now transferred over to EHCP. I have been advised that it is unusual for a home ed child to have an EHCP, nevertheless we do and I have also been advised that I could apply for funding to pay for an education producer such as InterHigh. Does anyone know about this or the legalities around it please? Our case worker at the LA is less than useless and seems to have no clue so I thought I would ask here. Many thanks
I imagine you would name Inter High in section I as the school of choice.
What sort of cost is Inter High? I've never heard of that.
I think it's to do with demonstrating that that the child's SEN cannot be met in an LEA school (be it mainstream or special).
Although they deny it, the implementation of EHCPs appears to be all about cost cutting so if they can get away with not paying you, they will try it? You could either lose the EHC on transfer, or just have a plan but with no funding attached (becoming more common here-to put peole off bothering to apply).
Have you contacted IPSEA for advice?
