Plymouth Local Offer

Most mainstream schools/settings and colleges will be able to meet your child's special educational needs. However, if your child needs more support than the school can provide they may need an Education, Health and Care Plan.

An education, health and care assessment is a process where information is collected from schools and professionals to give us a clear picture of your child's or young person's education health and care needs.

Submitting a plan

If you are a parent please email senadmin@plymouth.gov.uk or call 01752 307409

Creating a plan

We'll create a draft plan and then send you a copy. You have 15 days to comment and then we have 20 weeks from the date of the assessment to give you the final plan.
