Special Educational Needs 2010

The Department of Education has just published Children with Special Educational Needs 2010: An Analysis. This is the second edition of an annual report which provides detailed information on children with SEN in England.

Already the report has made a few headlines for claiming that almost one in four primary school boys has special educational needs; this is a particularly interesting statistic in light of last month's Ofsted review which claimed that currently thousands of children have been misdiagnosed with SEN (see previous post for details). However, the new publication also contains plenty of information on topics such as achievement at different key stages, breakdowns of SEN pupils by factors such as gender or ethnicity, and data on exclusions.
