How did we create North Lincolnshire’s Education, Health and Care Plan?

A task and finish group – representing parents, schools, colleges, early years providers, health and local authority education / social care teams – met to consider the task.

What did the working group do?

  • thought about the needs of children & young people, parents and professionals and how the plan could represent their views
  • looked at what had been created by pathfinder local authorities and identified the best elements within these plans
  • developed and refined North Lincolnshire’s Education, Health & Care Plan through 10 versions which were refined by consulting the partners and the teams they represented.

We consulted more widely

  • By talking to parents of pupils with Statements of SEN at consultation meetings
  • By talking to children in mainstream and special schools and the Disabled Children’s Forum


North Lincolnshire’s Education, Health & Care Plan

  • Is child, young person and family focussed
  • Is written from the child & young person’s viewpoint
  • Identifies need and celebrates achievement
  • Is aspirational
  • Identifies outcomes expected in the longer term and also within the lifetime of the annual plan
  • Ensures we are all accountable for delivering the outcomes
  • Puts children, young people and their families at the centre of the planning process
