Supporting special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) - templates, referral forms and reports

Templates, referral forms and reports that professionals can use when supporting children and young people aged 0-25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

These templates show the type of information that is required detailing what professionals know about a child/young person. The advice provided should be used by the setting when requesting an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC) assessment, and/or reviewing an existing EHC plan. Settings submitting a request for Top Up funding should complete the new Educational Advice template.
