How Additional Learning Needs is changing

ALNCo - Miss Silke


Blaenymaes Primary School is an inclusive school where all staff are committed to the success of every pupil.


All children are valued, respected and welcomed to our school, whatever their additional educational needs may be. We support children’s learning and aim to ensure they are fully included in all school activities.


Blaenymaes’ Special Educational Needs Policy gives information to parents, teachers and Governors about the way individual pupils can be helped.  We work closely with many outside agencies, including our Educational Psychologist, Hayley Cleave, and our Behaviour Support Specialist, Ruth Slocombe.


Early identification is important, as it means the child’s difficulties can be addressed as soon as possible, thereby enabling him/her to access the curriculum successfully.


Children, where possible, are also encouraged to participate in making decisions about their education e.g. setting and reviewing learning targets and contributing to IEPs.


In a very small number of cases, the child’s needs remain so substantial that the school will request a statutory assessment from the Local Authority and a Statement of their educational needs may be issued. The Statement sets out what will be provided by the local authority and the school to meet the particular child’s needs. This Statement is reviewed annually.
