Covid Timelines

Sorry says Caseworker... Assessments are delayed due to Covid.. your plan will not be ready at 20 week timeframe!!!!
Sorry says Parent.. Computer says no!
Dear Caseworker
Please can you respond and let me know which of these exceptions below you are using to stop the process from achieving set timeframes? I do not see any that fits in terms of your email to me...
As you will know there are no longer any changes to the system due to Covid. So my child's plan must be decided by the date at 20weeks. For this to happen I would suggest you will need to source a private assessment if your team are so delayed?
If you need help locating someone I am happy to help.
9.42 Where there are exceptional circumstances, it may not be reasonable to expect local authorities and other partners to comply with the time limits above.
The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 set out specific exemptions.
These include where:
• appointments with people from whom the local authority has requested information are missed by the child or young person (this only applies to the duty on partners to comply with a request under the EHC needs assessment process within six weeks)
• the child or young person is absent from the area for a period of at least 4 weeks
• exceptional personal circumstances affect the child or his/her parent, or the young person, and
• the educational institution is closed for at least 4 weeks, which may delay the submission of information from the school or other institution (this does 153 not apply to the duty on partners to comply with a request under the EHC needs assessment process within six weeks)
