Progress in maths and English for children with SEN


Pilot projects of the Government-funded Achievement for All scheme have delivered substantial progress in attainment, behaviour and attendance for children with SEN, says a new report. In English and maths, children on the scheme made greater progress than other children with SEN, with some doing even better than those without SEN.

The independent evaluation of the scheme, carried out by the University of Manchester, also found significant improvements in pupil attendance, with an average reduction in persistent absence of ten per cent.

The Achievement for All programme, which has been running for two years in roughly 450 schools, focuses on supporting schools and teachers to improve outcomes for children and young people with SEN.

Children’s Minister Sarah Teather has announced funding of £14 million to help fund the roll-out of the programme across the country. The programme is being delivered by a new charity, Achievement for All 3As, chaired by Brian Lamb.
