The Act

Section 10 – Reviews of co-ordinated support plans

21.This section provides for reviews of co-ordinated support plans. Education authorities have a duty to keep under consideration the adequacy of each co-ordinated support plan. The education authority must therefore review each plan every 12 months. It may be reviewed earlier if there has been a significant change in the circumstances of the child or young person, for example if their needs change or if progress is greater than expected. This will ensure that the information contained in the plan remains up-to-date and relevant, especially the educational outcomes and the support needed to achieve these.

22.Parents, or a young person, may also request the education authority to review the plan at an earlier interval than 12 months. The education authority must comply with such a request unless the request is unreasonable.
