ALN transformation programme FAQs
Welcome to the ALN page at Ysgol Nantgwyn. Ysgol Nantgwyn is dedicated to inclusive practices and offers a continuum of provision to meet individual pupils’ needs. Pupils with Additional Learning Needs are taught in mainstream classes and in mixed ability classes where they may receive additional support from our faculty progress coaches; or if they are statemented an ALN progress coach, depending on need. The class teacher will be fully aware of any additional learning needs within the class and will differentiate accordingly. Pupils will access support in class or through withdrawal sessions, depending on their difficulty and/or the intervention needed.
The ALNCo (Mrs Helen Higgs) and her Assistant ALNCo (Ms Leah Jervis) lead a team of specially trained ALN Progress Coaches who also deliver an extensive range of wellbeing and academic intervention programmes to meet individual needs.
Additional Learning Needs (ALN) Act
The Welsh Government aims to transform the expectations, experiences and outcomes for children and young people with additional learning needs.
To do so, they have developed the Additional Learning Needs (ALN) ACT, which will transform the separate systems for Special Educational Needs (SEN) in schools and learning difficulties and/or disabilities (LDD) in further education, to create a unified system for supporting learners from 0 to 25 with ALN.
