Prior to September 2014, children received a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) from their local authority if they required additional educational provision. Children with an SEN statement accounted for 11% of all pupils known to have some additional educational needs in Hackney in 2013.

Under the Children and Families Act 2014 these statements have been replaced by Educational Health and Care (EHC) plans, which aim to address broader health and social care needs. From September 2014, children who already had an SEN statement would be transferred to an EHC plan within three and a half years. 2

Local data is framed around the following headings:

Pre-school 

School age
