Answered by: Nick Gibb
Answered on: 11 November 2016

Our vision for children with SEN and disabilities is the same as that for all children and young people – that they achieve well in their early years, at school and in college, that they find employment; lead happy and fulfilled lives; and experience choice and control. All schools must make admission decisions over those with Special Educational Needs and disabilities (SEND) fairly, and where a child with SEND meets the admission criteria of a selective school, this will allow them to access the benefits of education at that school just the same as for any other pupil. We also expect selective schools to support the wider school system by being engines of academic and social achievement for all pupils, whatever their background and whatever their ability, and we are consulting on how we can ensure this is the case.

The information requested is presented in the table below. The latest statistics providing the number of pupils with special educational needs (SEN) in schools broken down by school and admission policy can be found in the underlying data of the ‘Special educational needs in England: January 2016’ statistical first release: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/special-educational-needs-in-england-january-2016.
