This statistical first release publishes data from the January 2015 school census on pupils with special educational needs and information about special schools in England. It also provides data on the characteristics of pupils by their SEN provision. The release shows that 15.4 per cent of pupils in schools in England have identified special educational needs (equating to 1,301,445 pupils). This has been decreasing since 2010 (21.1 per cent) and is a fall of 2.5 percentage points since last year. Nearly a quarter of pupils with a primary need were recorded as having ‘Moderate Learning Difficulty’ as their primary need – the most common primary need. (Edited publisher abstract)

Intellectual disability nursing in Ireland: identifying its development and future

Intellectual disability nursing is one of the smallest branches of nursing in Ireland. As the discipline of intellectual disability nursing is unique to Ireland and the United Kingdom, there is a responsibility on intellectual disability nurses to identify their unique identity and their responses to the demands of changing services. Since its inception as an individual nursing profession in 1959 in Ireland, both education and service provision philosophies have changed over time. These changes have been in response to national and international reports and changing attitudes. The history of the care of persons with an intellectual disability in Ireland was originally one of institutional care and segregation from the community, but in the 1980s a social model of care began to be implemented. Intellectual disability nurse education in Ireland is currently a 4-year undergraduate course. Over the years, the discipline has been subject to much debate, relating to the nature of intellectual disability nursing and the knowledge, skills and role of nurses working in this area. This article traces the development of intellectual disability nursing in Ireland, identifying its educational development, service changes and future position.

Special educational needs and special education are very wide terms. At some stage during their school life, 1 in 5 of all children will need some form of special education. For most children this can be provided in a local primary or secondary school, sometimes called a mainstream school. For children with complex educational needs they may need a special school for some or all of their school life. All children now have a right to go to a mainstream school if that is what you want. The only exception to this right is when a child with special educational needs would have a negative effect on the education of other children in the class.
