During spring 2020, we consulted with all partners on the PEP document and process in order to ensure we were capturing the right information in the most helpful way. We are currently working to introduce an electronic PEP document and associated processes during the academic year 2020-21 and have revised our documents in line with the consultation outcomes to inform the development of this ePEP. We will share developments with all partners  and ensure training is available to support the use of the new plan as this work is undertaken.

In the light of the planned changes associated with the introduction of the ePEP this academic year, we have not made any changes to the paperwork for children and young people enrolled at education settings for the autumn term 2020.

Links to the forms to be used from September 2020 until further notice can be found here:
