There are 1.5 million pupils in England who have SEND, but only 4.3% of those have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), according to recent Government statistics. Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can massively affect a child or young person’s ability to learn and their educational experience as a whole. To ensure that children and young people with SEND achieve to the highest of their ability, it’s important that support and alternative approaches to teaching are offered. In 2021, Ofsted published SEND guidance stating the need for greater collaboration to provide improved outcomes for pupils with SEND. Therefore, schools and trusts must come together to review their SEND policy and practises to tackle the key issues that face pupils with SEND to give them the education they deserve to thrive.

• In 2022 the Government reported there were over 1.5 million school pupils in England with SEND, making up 17% of all students
• 389,171 people in schools in England had EHCPs according to government statistics
• The number of pupils who are receiving SEND support has increased from 12.6% to 13% as of 2023 according to the Government.
