School Prospectus

Additional Learning Needs


As soon as a class teacher or parent feels that a child shows signs of having learning difficulties the ALNCOis informed.  Discussions between parents and teachers will take place in the first instance, and monitoring the progress made in accordance with the Code of Practice will also be in place. Universal support and interventions will be planned to meet the needs of the child.


The children are assessed to find their specific difficulty and the class teacher  plan a programme of work for each child, at this time this will be captured on a class provision map and not on an individual basis. This will be referred to as universal support. The child may receive further support on a withdrawal basis where they spend some time in either a small group situation or as individuals with our TAs. We are also able to request the services provided by the outside agencies listed below if appropriate.


If it is felt that the children have significant ALN, parents, class teacher or the ALNCO may suggest consideration for an IDP ( Individual Education Plan). Further information about this consideration is available to read in the link to the ALN code beow. An IDP may be created is created with input from all adults in school, parents and the child and it is uaually reviewed annually.
