We work hard as we endeavour to meet the academic and emotional needs of our children. This effort is closely linked to our assessment practices. When we identify a need we do our best to address it. We liaise with parents when necessary and with a wide range of external expert agents.
Mrs. Williams is our Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator (ALNCo). She is our leader in this area and she works closely with colleagues in order to allow us to provide the best service possible. If parents have a concern regarding possible additional needs for their child, the first contact point should be the class teacher. They can make this initial contact via the Class Dojo messaging system or they are welcome to make an appointment to speak with their child’s teacher. In the area of ALN, there are always likely to be issues in relation to the level of demand being greater than the available resources. We do all we can, within these limitations, to facilitate good rates of progress for all of our pupils. Mrs. Williams can deal with general ALN queries via email@example.com
During the academic year 2021-22, we will be putting the Welsh Government’s new arrangements for ALN into practice; they will be gradually phased in.
