WHAT ARE ADDITIONAL LEARNING NEEDS?
Children have Additional Learning Needs if they are exceptionally able, have a learning difficulty, emotional or behavioural problems which require special education provision to be made for them.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS?
Providing for children with Additional Learning Needs is a matter for the whole school. Every teacher has a responsibility to ensure that each pupil with ALN receives the appropriate support so they can participate fully in the school’s whole, wide-ranging, broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum and enable them to develop to their full potential.
Mrs Sian Powys, ALN and Inclusion Co-ordinator, co-ordinates the provision in co-operation with Mrs Siwan Matthews, the ALN support teacher, along with an enthusiastic team of learning assistants. This team are responsible for :
Dr Katherine Walters is the named Governor with responsibility for Additional Learning Needs.
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (SEN)
Every child with Special Educational Needs is included in the SEN Register. It is the school’s policy to consult with parents when a child is placed in any stage and/or referred for an assessment by the Educational Psychologist or external agencies.
It is the school’s responsibility to place children in the Stages described in the SEN Code of Practice for Wales, and to support, monitor and review.
Reporting to parents / IEP/IPP Review meetings
Meetings are held three times a year towards the end of term to review targets on the Individual Education Plans (Junior Department) or the Individual Play Plans (Foundation Phase). Parents are invited to take part in the review with the class teacher. The meetings are held in the pupil's classroom to ensure privacy and more time is allocated for discussion.
During the consultation the child's progress is discussed and targets are reviewed. It is also an opportunity to discuss the pupil's and parents' response to the progress made and the way forward.
