While Skylarks was not affected by Tier 2, 3 or 4 restrictions and continued to operate from the Crossway Centre in a Covid-compliant manner, we have unfortunately had to close from January 2021. We continue to offer a wide range of services online and are working to introduce more virtual activities. We will re-open for face-to-face services as soon as it is safe to do so.

Online Workshop - How to check a Draft EHCP

Run by Michaela Eggleston from Skylarks
Please apply by 5pm 25/1/21. Emails with Zoom invite links will be sent out 48 hours (by 5pm 26/1/21) before the event. If you do not receive yours please email

Please note the time of this workshop is 7-8.30pm 28/1/21.

This is a 90 minute online workshop with our in-house SEND Advice Service Manager, Michaela Eggleston to provide information to anyone who wants to know how to check a draft EHCP. 

The places are limited to 10 spaces as the format is an interactive Workshop to allow people to ask questions and work through examples.

Many children with additional needs and disabilities need extra support in school. They often obtain this through a legal document called an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Our advice service can give you more information about EHCP's and guide you through the process.

If your Local Authority (LA) decides it is necessary for an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) to be issued following the information gathered during the 'Needs assessment', then you will receive a draft version of the EHCP.
You might also have received a draft amended EHCP if changes have been requested to an existing EHCP following a review.
You will be given 'at least 15 days' in which to add any comments you want to make about the plan itself as well as to request that a specific nursery/school/college is named in section 'I' (placement). 

This workshop will focus on the following

  • What is a Draft EHCP and when would you receive one;
  • What is the law around draft EHCPs;
  • What should be in a draft EHCP;
  • What you need to check when you receive the draft EHCP and how to do it;
  • Your rights in relation to requesting that a particular nursery/school/college is named in the EHCP;
  • What should happen after you have reviewed a draft EHCP 
  • What to do if you are not happy with the EHCP. 

The workshops are delivered online via 'Zoom' and you will have an opportunity to ask questions about draft EHCPs in general. If you have any questions particular to your own circumstances that we may not have time to deal with during the session, then you can arrange a separate appointment if required. 

We have a suggested donation of £10 for attendance at the workshop to help us continue to provide this valuable service.
