This is the number of pupils without a statement of Special Educational Need (SEN) (School Action Plus) achieving 5 or more A*-C or equivalent at Key Stage 4 (KS4) as a percentage of the number of pupils of the same SEN stage at the end of KS4. School Action Plus is when the teacher and the SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) are given advice or support from outside specialists. For example a specialist teacher, an educational psychologist, a speech and language therapist or other health professionals). Extra or different help to that provided through School Action can then be put in place. Data prior to 2013/14 is not directly comparable with later periods due to two major reforms 1. Professor Alison Wolf?''s Review of Vocational Education recommendations which: restrict the qualifications counted; prevent any qualification from counting as larger than one GCSE; and introduced a cap on the number of non-GCSEs included in performance measures at two per pupil. 2. An early entry policy to only count a pupil?''s first attempt at a qualification. https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/399238/SFR_02_2015-revised_GCSE_and_equivalents.pdf Local authority, region and the total (state-funded sector) figures cover achievements in state-funded schools only. They do not include pupils recently arrived from overseas.
