Additional Learning Needs (ALN) / E-Safety & Anti bullying




Provision for children with Additional Learning Needs (ALN) is changing. How does this affect procedures at ST JOHN LLOYD RC  PRIMARY SCHOOL?


Most children’s needs can be met by universal provision.

This may include:

*Completing work set at their level in class by their teacher

*Using resources available to all children to support their learning

*Receiving additional support through an intervention to boost their learning in an area of weakness


However, sometimes another approach must be carried out. This approach is to decided if the pupils has additional learning needs. Pupils with ALN will usually have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age. The approach will take on the the following process;


1. A 35 term-time day (7 term-time week) process will begin. The teacher will work with the Additional Learning Needs Coordinator, other professionals, the parents and the pupil to decide whether the child does have ALN.


2. A Person-Centred Meeting (PCM) will be scheduled for week 4 where evidence will be assessed and a decision will be made whether a learner has ALN.


3. If ALN are identified an Individual Development Plan (IDP) will be written and the Additional Learning Provision will begin at the end of the 35 days. If ALN are not identified then the pupil will continue with universal provision provided by the school.


4. A parent may appeal the decision with the local authority. Who have 4-weeks to respond. For further information read the information visit the ALN section of the Welsh Government website
