The percentage of special educational needs pupils achieving passes at GCSE at the end of Key Stage 4 (which more accurately accounts for the numbers of pupils in Pupils Referral Units and hospital schools). For the first time in 2010 International GCSEs (iGCSE) has been included within the performance tables and this indicator. The England figure shown details the % of pupils achieving 5+ A*-C grades inc English and Maths but excluding accredited iGCSEs taken in Independent Schools.

This is the percentage of pupils in state funded secondary schools who are judged to have special educational needs, but who do not have a statement, achieving 5 or more A* to C GCSEs (incl. English & mathematics). This is based on pupils at the end of Key Stage 4 in the academic year reported, in all state funded secondary schools, which includes academies and city technology colleges. The SEN variable indicates whether a pupil has learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age.
PRE 2013/14 DATA IS NOT COMPARABLE DUE TO CHANGES TO THE PRODUCTION OF THESE STATISTICS FOR THIS PERIOD
Two major reforms have been implemented which affect the calculation of Key Stage 4 (KS4) performance measures data: 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 cap 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. Comparisons between 2013/14 and earlier years should not be made before reading sections 2 and 3 of the statistical first release:
