ALN parents guide

The Welsh Government are determined to deliver a fully inclusive education system for learners in Wales, a system where needs are identified early and addressed quickly, and where all learners are supported to reach their potential.

Moving children from the SEN system to the ALN system will take place over 3 school years to make sure there is enough time for nurseries, schools, PRUs and local authorities to discuss the support needed and to prepare plans.

Spring and summer terms of the school year 2021 to 2022 Nursery Years 1 or 2, Year 1, Year 3, Year 5, Year 7 or Year 10
School year 2022 to 2023 Nursery Years 1 and 2, Year 1, Year 5, Year 9 and Year 10
School year 2023 to 2024 Year 4 and Year 8 and any other pupils with SEN on 1 January 2022 who did not move to the ALN system during the first and second years of implementation

In order to meet the needs of all our pupils we aim to:

  • Get to know our pupils in a holistic way - meeting with parents and relevant agencies in Person Centred Planning meetings in order that high quality teaching, adapting the curriculum and resources ensure pupils can access the curriculum.
  • Use pupil-friendly targets and needs-based One Page Profiles and individual learning plans. Where necessary we issue Individual Development Plans and involve pupils, parents and staff to write, implement and review them.
  • Assess and review the learning of our ALN pupils, using that information to inform future planning and teaching.
  • When appropriate, teaching assistants support ALN pupils.
  • Hold pupil progress meetings for teachers and teaching assistants with the ALNCo, to review pupils, interventions and resources and to adapt provision where necessary.
  • We support our families of pupils with ALN, and families are also advised of other services and organisations which may offer further advice and support.
  • Seek support and advice from outside agencies such as: Team around the Family (TAF), Paediatrics, Speech and Language Therapy and the Educational Psychology Service etc., to ensure each child’s needs are fully identified and understood and to learn from specialists how best to support our ALN pupils.
  • We evaluate the progress and impact of our intervention groups and strategies on a termly basis.
  • Use ICT (both hardware and software) to promote access to the curriculum.
  • Whole school policies such as those for behaviour, anti-bullying and ALN are evaluated on a regular basis with a focus on the impact upon pupils with ALN. Pupils are involved with this process.
  • Ensure our school activities and trips are accessible to all pupils. 
  • Hold termly review meetings with families of pupils with a higher level of ALN.
  • Provide on-going training to teachers and teaching assistants in meeting pupils’ needs in the classroom.
  • Liaise closely with secondary schools at transition times to ensure ALN pupil information is clearly communicated so that the move to secondary school is as smoother as possible.

For pupils who have a higher level of additional need we aim to

  • Support the pupil to work on their individual targets.
  • Support access to the curriculum
  • Provide pastoral support.
  • Deliver specific targeted interventions where necessary.

We seek support and advice from external agencies where needed, usually through the TAPPAS route (Team around the Pupil, Parent and School)

  • Access to Dyslexia Screening tools and support
  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Referral on to school provision such as ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant),
  • Behaviour Support or Nurture Provision.
  • Support from the Pembrokeshire County Council Inclusion Service.
