Guidelines for Parents

To place a child at Breckenbrough there needs to be support from the child’s Local Authority or Social Services. This would need an Education Health and Care Plan from the LA.

A child needs to fulfil the following criteria;

  • The student has academic potential and would like the opportunity to succeed educationally.
  • The student recognises that they have had and do have problems in school.
  • The student is willing to address their problems and progress.
  • The student is not a threat to other pupils.

Once an EHC plan is in place for a child or young person, it is unlikely to remain the same over time.

At least once a year, subject to certain exceptions, the EHC plan is required to be reviewed under the provisions of the Children and Families Act 2014.
