Full of Life have received the following statement from RBKC regarding the impending deadline of transfers of Statements to EHC Plans:

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea takes very seriously the statutory requirement to transfer Statements of Special Educational Needs to Education, Health and Care Plans by 31st March 2018. We are very pleased to confirm that all the transfer review assessments have commenced, other than where a Tribunal appeal is pending, and the vast majority will be completed by the deadline. In recognition of the challenges the SEN service has faced in completing this work, the service has been reorganised, additional resources have been allocated and new ways of working introduced. There is a real commitment and focus on completion by 31st March. In the event that there are transfers which have not been completed by 31st March, the council is very clear that the provision in the Statement will remain in place until the final Education, Health and Care Plan has been issued and we will keep any delay to a minimum.
