This is the number of pupils with Special Educational Need (SEN) Support achieving 5 or more A*-G 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. From 2015 SEN support replaces school action and school action plus but some pupils remain with these provision types in first year of transition. SEN Support is when extra or different help is given from that provided as part of the school?''s usual curriculum. The class teacher and SEN Coordinator (SENCO) may receive advice or support from outside specialists. 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.
