Additional Learning Needs

  • Mrs Natalie Edwards


Our School Additional Learning Needs Coordinator
Dear Parents, My name is Natalie Edwards and I have the privilege of being the ALNCO (Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator) at Ysgol y Waun School. This means that I have the overall responsibility for ensuring that all children with ALN (Additional Learning Needs) are well provided for and supported within the school. At Ysgol Y Waun School, it is our vision and mission to try and ensure that all children have access to a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum so that they can reach their full potential. This is no different for children who have additional needs and we pride ourselves on ensuring that children with ALN are as well supported as possible and cared for within our setting. Our school is a warm, caring and happy place and we believe that we have much to offer those children with ALN. We believe we have a good ALN record and our children make very good progress through targeted support and intervention. Also, we regularly liaise with outside agencies to help ensure that all children's needs are being met. If you have any queries or concerns about any issues concerning ALN, please do not hesitate to speak to either myself or your child's class teacher. If you wish to speak to me, if possible can you contact the school office on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. If this is not convenient, I can also be contacted at the end of the school day. Kind regards, Natalie Edwards
