Details

This publication includes information on:

  • children in need of social services
  • children referred to social services
  • assessments undertaken and primary need identified at assessment
  • section 47 enquiries and initial child protection conferences
  • children who were the subject of a child protection plan

All 27 tables from the publication are contained in the ‘National and local authority tables: SFR43/2014’ excel document.

We published additional tables showing figures as a result of matching the children in need census to the national pupil database (NPD) on 26 February 2015.

These tables show children in need by:

  • prevalence of free school meals (FSM)
  • special educational needs (SEN)
  • attainment
  • absence and exclusions.

Further details of the matching process and calculations included in these tables can be found in the ‘methodology document 2: SFR43/2014’ file.
