This report presents the statistics on SEND available for Bournemouth, compared to your selected comparison group of All English single tier and county councils. This should help to assess how well arrangements since the reforms are working and compare delivery across local areas.
The aim is to bring local area SEND data into one place, providing an evidence base that can be a starting point for conversations at a local and national level on progress and priorities.
However, this is not a checklist against which local areas should measure performance. These statistics tell only part of the story, and what makes a successful outcome will vary hugely for individual children and young people.
Much of the information below is education-focused - this is because most of the data available currently relates to education. The Department for Education is working with the Department of Health to link data from their Children and Young People's Health Services Data Set to the national pupil database, as this will increase health data for SEND pupils significantly. We hope to add this data to this report once available.
The metrics below are those available at a local authority level currently, which relate to SEND. If there are other metrics which meet this criteria that you think would improve the report, or you have any other feedback on how we could improve the report, please contact us by emailing email@example.com.
The data in the metrics below will update automatically each time the latest data is published. If any values are missing from the database a ‘no value’ will appear, this is because a figure was not available from published sources. Please use the feedback form: http://lginform.local.gov.uk/feedback if you have any technical queries regarding the report or the data collections used.
