Education in Waltham Forest

Waltham Forest has high levels of identification of SEND at both school SEN support and Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) levels in all schools compared to neighbouring boroughs. According to recent analyses this appears to be roughly in line with what would be expected given the borough's average deprivation levels.

All schools in the borough help pupils with SEND achieve good outcomes, generally above national and regional averages. The special schools within the borough boundary are high quality with good and outstanding Ofsted judgements, providing effective local provision for those with the most complex SEND.

The borough has low levels of permanent exclusions, but above average fixed term exclusions and rates of school absenteeism.

The data on this page were correct at the time the 'Ambition for Education in Waltham Forest' strategy document was finalised (August 2016).
