Panorama: fighting for an education, why it’s time to digitise EHC pathways
In England, there are around 1.4 million pupils with special educational needs (SEN). There is support available to aid their learning and development, with 3.3% of all pupils in England on an education, health and care (EHC) plan, while a further 12.1% receive SEN support without an EHC plan.
Receiving such support is based on a number of processes, which were the focus of a recent edition of BBC’s Panorama. First broadcast on 7 September, the episode – titled ‘Fighting for an education’ – explored the challenges parents and carers face in securing EHC plans for children with SEN.
Chris Evans, Head of Product and Strategy at Idox, shares his insight in our latest paper. Download the paper to learn how digitising the process can help to:
- Transform paper and email-based processes and drive transparency
- Support improved communication between all stakeholders in the process
- Alleviate pressure and increase meaningful engagement
