In September 2021, the Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act (ALNET) changed the way people aged 0-25 with Additional Learning Needs (ALN) are supported in education.
At the heart of ALNET is the commitment to place the child at the centre of everything. This suits us perfectly at Ysgol Sant Baruc: we’re totally committed to that exact principle.
ALNET's aim is to provide fully inclusive education for children and young people in Wales, where needs are identified early, and addressed quickly.
At Ysgol Sant Baruc, we believe that the best provision for ALN is high quality teaching and learning throughout the school – teaching that includes everyone, ensuring progress for all.
Our ALN framework is in the care of our Senior Leadership Team, under the direction of our Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator (ALNCO), Mr Steffan Elis.
The Additional Learning Needs process can seem daunting. We get that. Our aim is to work with you throughout the process of identifying needs and working out what provision is required to ensure progress and to review progress to refine our next steps.
