If your child has additional needs, you can work with the people that support your child to put together a support plan. In Essex we call this a One Plan.   

How it can help your child 

A One Plan should help identify who is going to do what, when they're going to do it, how often and for how long.      

One planning includes reviewing the child or young person’s progress based on their goals.  It should be a working document which means it can be reviewed and changed over time.       

How the plan is made 

This plan is developed, shared, and used by all the people working with the child or young person. 

It should include information from the child or young person, you as the parent or carer and professionals.  

Find out more about One Planning by watching a video produced by the Maze Group and Families in Focus and this learning event video from Essex County Council

If your child already has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), One Planning should take place every term.
