Additional Learning Needs

Here at Hendre Junior School we operate a fully inclusive policy with regard to Additional Learning Needs (ALN).

All of our pupils are given equal access to every aspect of the school with well-being playing a central role in nurturing their development.

Our ALN pupils have access to interventions within and beyond the classroom through differentiation, adaptations to resources and the environment, additional support and targeted provision.

The school has a team of Learning Support Assistants (LSA’s) who are involved in providing a range of interventions throughout the school.  These interventions are tailored to meet the specific needs of our pupils and may include Literacy and Numeracy interventions as well as a range of interventions to meet other needs, such as THRIVE and Nurture. 

Pupils who have a statement of specific educational need may also, if stipulated in their statement, receive specific support from LSA’s provided by the local authority. 

 

ADDITIONAL LEARNING NEEDS REFORM IN WALES - INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND CARERS.

NEW ALN BILL AND CODE

Additional Learning Needs as we know it is changing. A New ALN Bill and Code of Practice is anticipated to come into effect from September 2021. 

Within our school we are taking steps to prepare for the reform. We recognise the importance of parents as key stakeholders in their children's education and want to ensure we keep you updated the changes are made.

We hope that you find the information on these websites useful in helping you to understand the changes.
