ALN (Additional Learning Needs)

In line with our ALN policy we aim to identify children with ALN as early as possible and ensure that appropriate provision is made to match their needs. This includes children with learning difficulties and those more able pupils who require additional challenge.


Our school has an ALNCo (Additional Learning Needs Coordinator), who will liaise with class teachers, teaching assistants and outside agencies to ensure suitable provision for identified pupils.


We use this staged approach of the Code of Practice when identifying pupils with Additional Learning Needs:

  • School Action

  • School Action Plus

  • Statement / Funded IDP


Parents will be invited into school when we feel a child should be placed on the Additional Learning Needs register. An educational plan is constructed in consultation with the ALNCo and the class teacher where additional needs are identified.
