- The majority of the children and young people in the sample have an EHCP (68%).
- Only a quarter of the pupils in the School Census 2021 dataset have an EHCP meaning that the survey sample substantially over-represents children and young people with one.
- Respondents whose children or young people do not have an EHCP were then asked whether they know how to access support for their special educational needs; the sample is essentially split down the middle with 49% knowing how to access support and 51% not knowing how to access support for their child or young person.
