How many children have SEND? The question posed in the recent article from the Educatoin Policy Institute. 

The initial research has found that  nearly 40% of pupils are considered to have Special Educational Needs (SEN) or a disability at some point during their school career. Also of interest, is that not all children remain within this definition for their whole time in school. 

If you believe your child has SEND and requires additional support you should ask your child's school about an Education Health and Care Plan. For more advice please contact us or see our factsheets.
