Additional Learning Needs

As part of the Additional Learning Needs Educational and Tribunal (ALNET) Act 2018, Welsh Government has replaced the term ‘special educational needs’ with ‘additional learning needs’ (ALN). 

The Act and the newly introduced ALN Code for Wales 2021, identifies key roles for those who support the coordination and implementation of the ALN system in schools and education settings. Miss Dolan, as Head of Inclusion, is our Additional Learning Needs Coordinator (ALNCo)  and she is responsible for leading and coordinating additional learning provision (ALP) for students who require educational or training provision that is, ‘…additional to, or different from, that made generally for others of the same age…’, ALN Code for Wales 2021, Chapter 2. Mrs Thomas, as Assistant Head/Head of Marion Centre, has strategic oversight of inclusion across the school and supports Miss Dolan to ensure the school is meeting the needs of students and fulfilling its statutory duties.

We use a 'person centred practice' to improve communication between students, families and staff when planning for progress and transition between year groups and educational settings. Where progress is identified as being less than expected, high-quality teaching, including differentiation, standard routine interventions and/or reasonable adjustments may not be sufficient to meet the needs of all our students. In this situation, students may be identified as having an ALN and it will be necessary for the school to take some additional or different action to secure progress.

Deciding whether a student has an ALN will be based on assessment of progress over time, from a range of sources. Where students have an identified disability, for the purposes of the Equality Act, assessment evidence will relate to whether that disability prevents or hinders the student from accessing any aspect of the school curriculum. The Head of Inclusion (ALNCo) plays a key role in develop a shared understanding of progress for individual students, including expectations around what progression may look like and the pace at which a student may progress.
