Data Provider: Welsh Government National Statistics Reports of Special Educational Needs (SEN) in primary, middle and secondary schools by local authority, sector, Welsh/English Medium, and type of need.

The number of times each SEN type was reported e.g. if SEN types 'Dyslexia' and 'Dyspraxia' are reported for a pupil that pupil is counted twice, once under each type. The number of SEN reports will therefore be greater than the number of pupils with SEN.
