Special Educational Needs: General Certificate of Secondary Education

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many and what percentage of pupils with (a) a statement of special educational needs and (b) unstatemented special educational needs achieved five A* to C grades at GCSE in each year since 1997, broken down by type of school. (249910)

[holding answer 21 January 2009]: The requested information is only available from 2003 onwards. Changes to data collections and definitions over time mean that for 2003 to 2004 the figures cover pupils aged 15. For 2005 onwards, the figures cover pupils at the end of their key stage 4 studies. As the figures require details of pupil characteristics (i.e. SEN), they are only available for maintained schools.
