In a speech last week at the Association of Directors of Children's Services Conference, Minister Edward Timpson announced that the Government will extend the maximum timescale for transferring individual statements from 16 to 20 weeks, matching the timescale for new assessments. This will take effect from 1 September 2015.

The Minister has written to Directors of Children's Services about how this change will take effect.  You can read the letter here
