Additional Learning Needs and Inclusion

At Ysgol Deiniol we are passionate about creating an environment where all pupils can thrive and develop.

All staff strive to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils. When planning, teachers set suitable learning challenges and respond to pupils’ diverse learning needs. Some pupils will have barriers to learning that mean they have needs that are additional to and different from their peers and require particular action by the school.

We aim to identify at the earliest opportunity, all children who need special consideration to support their physical, social emotional communication and cognitive development.

Once these needs have been identified we will work in partnership with parents/carers and other agencies, Speech and Language Therapy, Educational Psychologist Service, Neurodevelopment Team, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and Inclusion. This will provide the appropriate support for our pupils so they can reach their potential.

As part of the graduated response, we implement support at a universal (UP) and targeted universal (TUP) level and through additional learning needs provision (ALP). The support that we provide for pupils relating to cognition and learning, social and communication needs, emotional, social and behavioural needs and physical and medical needs are all part of this offering. In addition, the support we provide for Looked After Children (LAC) and for pupils who have English as an Additional Language (EAL) in also included within this offering.
