"A systematic approach to EHCP auditing, simplifying what is otherwise a complex process."


Heralded as a game-changer, the award-winning Invision360 EHCP quality assurance tool empowers you to audit the quality of EHCPs against recognised standards, giving you the data and insights to target improvements and improve outcomes.

We created the EHCP quality assurance audit tool to provide greater clarity on the quality of EHCPs in your area and educate your plan writers on what a ‘good’ or ‘better’ EHCP looks like.

With access to data insights at an operational, service improvement and performance level, our local authority partners often refer to our EHCP audit tool as ‘the missing piece of the puzzle’ identifying 'why' plans not meeting the needs of children and young people.

Why should you adopt our tool?


"We use the data retrieved through the tool to analyse 'where' and 'why' EHCPs need improving. Crucially, the Invision360 EHCP QA tool enables us to pinpoint exactly where EHCP improvements are needed. This then feeds into the learning and development of staff to support the preparation of good quality EHCPs."

Hayley Jackson, SEND Service Manager at Wigan Council

‘Leaders have established quality assurance processes for EHC plans and the contributions professionals make to them. They have ensured that new EHC plans are audited against a quality assurance framework and this has resulted in EHC plans of better quality that meet statutory requirements. In newer and recently amended EHC plans, children and young people’s needs are clearly identified.’

Frequently Asked Questions

What impact are the Invision360 tools making?

There is an abundance of quantitative data within our tools that LAs are utilising to demonstrate higher quality performance as a result of using Invision360 audit tools.

Invision360 has been cited and referenced in numerous Ofsted and CQC inspection outcome reports due to the positive progress local areas are making and the considerable improvements they have observed following implementation.

In June 2023, Invision360, in partnership with Stockton Borough Council, won the prestigious MJ award for digital transformation; this was a direct result of the positive impact demonstrated following the implementation of the Invision360 tools.

Is any personal data stored on the tools?

Personal data is defined by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) as information relating to natural persons who can be identified or who are identifiable, directly from the information in question; or who can be indirectly identified from that information in combination with other information. Under the ICO definition, we store two forms of personal data:

• The name of a user as it is entered onto the platform

• The email address of a user as it is entered onto the platform.

What security exists around the storage and use of data on the platform?

We apply and regularly review appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard your data. This includes ensuring data is kept in a highly available state by replicating it across geographically distinct, physical data centres based in the UK. This ensures that in the unlikely event of one of our data centres suffering an outage, our systems can ‘flip’ to a different data centre. When we test these failover scenarios it takes - on average - 30 seconds to complete.

Your data is encrypted in transit and at rest.

Our internal access policies set out who at Invision360 can access your data, and we’ll only do so as part of a support request or maintenance. We apply principles of least access across all levels.

Do Invision360 tools align with existing case management software that we are using?

Yes, our quality assurance tools align with case management systems.

What challenges does the Invision360 EHCP tool address?

The quality & consistency of EHCPs was the third most referenced significant weakness when all Ofsted & CQC SEND Local Area inspection results are analysed.
A large number of Local Areas inspected received a WSoA (Written Statement of Action), and ALL of these inspection outcome letters reference limitations about the quality and consistency of EHCPs
Invision360 has supported LAs in making significant evidence-based improvements to the quality and consistency of EHCPs.

Are other Local Areas using the Invision360 EHCP QA tool?

Yes! Currently (as of July 2023), over 40 Local Authorities are using the Invision360 tools. These Local Authorities are using the same software, auditing using the same criteria, and can benchmark their progress and performance data.

Is there any evidence of impact with the Invision360 EHCP QA tool?

There is an abundance of quantitative data within our tools that Local Authorities are adopting to demonstrate higher quality performance as a result of using the Invision360 EHCP audit tool.

In addition, we have been cited and referenced in numerous Ofsted and CQC inspection outcome reports due to the positive progress local areas are making and the considerable improvements they are observing in EHCP quality following the implementation of our tools.

Recently (June 2023) Invision360, in partnership with Stockton Borough Council, won the prestigious MJ award for digital transformation; this was a direct result of the positive impact the council could demonstrate following the implementation of the Invision360 EHCP tool.
