SEN stress-test 2020

Analysis of local areas experiencing most SEN pressures.

This document presents an updated analysis for 2020 of SEN trends nationally and how these trends vary between local areas.

It has a particular focus on:

  • 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 (i.e. specialist provision that is used when children’s needs cannot be met locally)

The latter half of our analysis – the SEN stress-test – recognises that local authorities are experiencing different pressures. We use 7 indicators to identify those who we think are experiencing the most pressures and stresses in relation to SEN provision.
