Additional Learning Needs at Coychurch (Llangrallo) Primary School.


At Coychurch (Llangrallo) Primary School, we believe that every child should be valued for their individual talents. It is our aim to provide every child with happy memories and the best education possible.


Children have additional learning needs (ALN) if they have a learning difficulty that calls for additional educational provision to be made for them. Children have a learning difficulty if they:


  • Have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age.
  • Have a disability that prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age in schools within the area of the local education authority.
  • Are under compulsory school age and fall within the definitions above.


Most support for pupils who have additional learning needs occurs in class. That is, the class teacher will plan a differentiated set of activities which cater for the child’s individual needs. These activities are then delivered by our experienced Learning Support Officers.  In addition to this, children may also be withdrawn for a one to one session. We also work closely with external agencies such as the cognition and learning team and the wellbeing and behaviour team to ensure that all our children receive the specific support that they require.


A copy of our SEN/ALN policy can be viewed in the policy section of our website or can be viewed by interested parties at our school.


Should you have any concerns about your child's ALN or you would like an informal chat regarding aspects of ALN please contact Mrs John our Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator (ALNCo) via the school office.
