SEN stress-test 2018
10 September 2018
Our 2018 analysis of special educational needs (SEN) and updated SEN stress-test is now available for download.
The document provides an analysis of SEN trends, including:
- Numbers and rates of children with SEN
- Types of need
- Profile of provision used to respond to these needs
- Spending on Independent and Non-Maintained Special Schools (typically more specialist provision that is used when children’s needs cannot be met locally)
The SEN stress-test was developed in recognition that national trends often disguised very different local trends and pressures.The stress-test uses 7 indicators to identify local authorities that may be experiencing the most pressures in relation to SEN provision.
