Additional Learning Needs Information

During their time in school many children may require additional support for areas of their learning.  It may be necessary for your child’s teacher to target individual children to offer additional support both in class and in small groups.  If this happens, we will place your child on our Additional Learning Needs register and their class teacher will identify targets for them to achieve next term. The class teacher will then help them in class through adult support or resources, extra time, etc so that they can complete work at a pace that they feel comfortable with. They may also be having difficulty managing their behaviour, having speech difficulties or a medical need.

Where a child’s ALN is identified by a class teacher then he/she will discuss the child’s needs with Miss Atherton (Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator) and strategies to meet the identified need will be implemented. This will be reviewed every term, and if your child continues to experience difficulties then the class teacher and the ALNCO will discuss the best way forward.
