Additional Learning Needs
The ALNCo (Additional Learning Needs Coordinator) is Mrs. K Adams.
Pupils who have specific learning difficulties can be entered on the ALN Register following consultation with parents, and are monitored carefully according to the Welsh Office Code of Practice.
Individual Education Profiles are written termly by staff and ALNCo, which establish realistic targets, and these are reviewed with parents. Children with ALN including MAT (More Able and Talented) are catered for by differentiated work in the classroom with classroom support. Every care is taken, however, to ensure that all ALN children are given equal opportunity, so that they do not feel ‘different’ from the rest of the group.
We have a policy for Additional Learning Needs (ALN) which follows the guidelines of the Code of Practice and the LEA. This policy emphasises the importance of a whole school approach to ALN and systems of support for staff and pupils.
We aim to identify additional learning needs through a process of early identification, monitoring and assessment. We strive to ensure that all pupils, regardless of ability have access to a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum.
We encourage parents’ involvement to develop good working relationships between staff, pupils and outside agencies and providers of support services.
An access plan is available in school.
