ALN

The term 'additional learning needs’ (ALN) has a legal definition and refers to young people who have learning, physical or sensory needs which calls for additional learning provision. 


 

Pupils have different strengths and abilities, particular needs and areas for development. Some pupils show academic ability early and need to be encouraged and appropriately challenged.  Others need more time or assistance to develop their skills in reading, spelling or mathematics or their emotional health and wellbeing.

All areas of school life are inclusive and the teaching is tailored towards individual learning providing challenge and support; encouraging everyone to reach their full potential. Account is taken of individual needs through appropriate differentiation of the curriculum both in the classroom and where appropriate, in an individual or small group situation. 

If additional learning provision is needed we aim to involve and support individual children, their families and staff to participate as fully as possible in the decision making process through the use of Person Centred Practice. This puts the child at the centre of everything we do, respecting their needs and preferences in the way they learn and empowering them to achieve and become ambitious, confident learners. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the progress of your child, the first point of contact is your child’s teacher. Class teachers will be able to discuss the range of support already in place or create new learning plans with you, through a One Page Profile (OPP).
