Statements - Pre September 2014

Statutory Assessment - Pre September 2014

Statutory assessment is a very detailed look at:

  • What your child can and cannot do
  • The special help he or she may need in order to learn

It is sometimes referred to as formal assessment and is carried out by the Local Authority under the 1996 Education Act. The outcome of a statutory assessment before September 2014 was called a "Statement of Special Educational Needs".

However, this was replaced in September 2014, by an "Education Health and Care Plan" and all "Statements" were meant to be converted to the new arrangements by March 31 2018.

Coventry Local Authority reports that only a handful of "Statements" have not been re-assessed through a "Transfer Review" between Sept 2014 and March 2018 - if you believe that you still have a statement in place, either for yourself or for your child, then contact the Statutory Assessment and Review Service on 024 7683 1614.
