Additional Learning Needs

Staff at Castell Alun believe that all students should be encouraged to achieve their full potential whatever their level of ability. We have a whole school approach to Additional Needs, which includes supporting student learning and recognising achievement.

ALN in Wales is entering an exciting new period of change. The new ALN Code of Practice was accepted by the Senedd in early 2021. In keeping with the Code of Practice we have now adopted a person-centred approach to ALN; putting the student and their needs at the centre of process.

Provision at Castell Alun

At Castell Alun, we endeavour to provide for the varied needs of all of our students. Everyone is an individual and personal needs may change over time. The table below is intended to be an inexhaustive yet reasonably comprehensive list of the support and interventions which we are able to provide. Please note, however, that all of these support mechanisms will not necessarily be available in each individual learning experience.
