Additional Learning Needs (ALN)
The school aims to offer a high standard of inclusive education and equality of opportunity to all individuals.
Many children, at some stage in their school careers, will have additional learning needs of some description. The school will endeavour to identify these needs, and to formulate a relevant programme, in cooperation with parents/carers for each child’s particular circumstances. The assessment will aid in recognizing the needs of able and talented children as well as those having learning needs.
If a child has additional learning needs, then the extent of the child’s need is discussed with the parents/carers. The school will then produce a programme for the pupil that can lead to individual teaching or group.
A copy of the school’s Additional Learning Needs Policy will be available from the school office.
Ysgol Caer Elen has a well-resourced department for teaching small groups and for individual pupil support. An exceptionally able child will be identified using the same process. We have a positive working relationships with external agencies such as the Educational Psychologist, Social Services etc.
Our Additional Learning Needs co-ordinator at Ysgol Caer Elen is Mrs Jane Davies.
