This Statistical First Release (SFR) brings together the information available on Special Educational Needs (SEN) and related information about special schools in England. It updates and supplements provisional 2007 figures published in the SFR "Pupil Characteristics and Class Sizes in Maintained Schools in England".

Information is mainly drawn from two sources: the Annual Schools Census and the SEN2 Survey. The SFR provides information on the incidence and placement of pupils with SEN together with analyses on the characteristics and attainment of pupils by their stage of SEN.
