At Dafen Primary School we are committed to providing the best education possible for all learners. Each and every child is unique and learns at different paces and we are committed to reducing barriers for pupils with ALN through providing the support needed in order for the pupils to make progress in their education and lives. We use a Person Centred Planning approach to all our planning, reviews, meetings.


Welsh Assembly Government are in the process of transforming expectations, experiences and outcomes for children and young people with additional learning needs (ALN). To do so, they have developed the additional learning needs (ALN) transformation programme, which transforms the separate systems for special educational needs (SEN) in schools and learning difficulties and/or disabilities (LDD) in further education, to create a unified system for supporting learners from 0 to 25 with ALN.


The transformed system will:

• ensure that all learners with ALN are supported to overcome barriers to learning and achieve their full potential

• improve the planning and delivery of support for learners from 0 to 25 with ALN, placing learners’ needs, views, wishes and feelings at the heart of the process

• focus on the importance of identifying needs early and putting in place timely and effective interventions which are monitored and adapted to ensure they deliver the desired outcomes.


The ALN transformation programme also focuses on skills development for the education workforce, to deliver effective support to learners with ALN in the classroom, as well as easier access to specialist support, information and advice.
