Special Educational Needs

Do you have a child with SEN or suspect they need extra support with their learning?

We asked 1,003 parents living in the UK with children aged 4-14.*

  • More than one in four parents (27%) told us that they had a child with Special Educational Needs (SEN).

  • A staggering 28% of parents told us that they don't think children with SEN have access to sufficient academic support.*

*Research conducted by Atomik Research Insights & Analytics (part of 4Media Group) *77 out of the 275 respondents who told us that they have at least one child with SEN.

You’re not alone…

According to the January 2022 Census over 1.1 million pupils in school (12.6%) are receiving some sort of special educational needs (SEN) support, however only 4% of pupils have an education, health and care (EHC) plan in place.

David, featured below, has Austistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which is the most common need of children with an EHC plan, affecting over 103,000 children in England.

My advice for other parents whose children might have SEN is to keep talking to the teachers and tutors, share with them what happens to your child at home and in school, what he/she is good at, what they dislike, inform them of the lessons they are having issues within the school, show the tutors your child’s school reports, etc. In short, just actively engage with their education.

Where do parents find extra support for their child with SEN?

From our research it appears there's some confusion about where parents can source extra support for their child with SEN.

  • 55% of parents wouldn't know where to ask for SEN academic support

  • 74% of parents would consider paying for extracurricular tuition to support a child with SEN.

That's where we come in!
