Registration for children with an education, health and care (EHC) plan

If your child has an education, health and care (EHC) plan or a statement of special educational needs they can still sit the Medway Test. You will need to register in the same way as everyone else.

If your child needs special arrangements to sit the test you can submit a request. The deadline for your school to submit a special arrangements request is Monday 6 July 2020. Please ensure you speak to your child’s school before this date if you think your child needs special arrangements for the Medway Test.

A child may need special arrangements if they have a disability or learning difficulty.
