Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council
Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council's database contains data for all SEN pupils, including those educated outside the county borough. It contains information about each pupil's identity, the nature of their needs, and the type and location of provision.
Pupils' attendance is also recorded. For pupils educated within the authority, the data is easily linked at individual pupil level to PLASC data and to the system containing information about pupil attainment. Schools are therefore not required to enter pupil-level data in more than one place.
PLASC data includes each pupil's stage on the SEN Code of Practice, the need type (up to two types of need per pupil and the ranking of these) and the date of the last review. Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council has also piloted the recording within PLASC of a categorisation of the nature of provision for each pupil. To date, SENCOs and senior managers in the authority are reported to be very positive about the value of these categories in helping to describe the different kinds of provision that SEN pupils experience.
