Additional Learning Needs (ALN)

All pupils with identified ALN at Cwmbran High School are fully included in all lessons and will therefore have access to the full curriculum:

  • All pupils with identified ALN will be recorded on the school’s ALN Register which is circulated to all staff within the school. This register is reviewed twice a year and amended accordingly. Parents will be informed where necessary.
  • Students who have a Statement of Educational Needs will have an Annual Review yearly.

 At Cwmbran High School the ALC (Additional Learning Centre) is the hub for providing and co ordinating support for mainstream pupils who require it.

In addition we have an Internal Ready to Learn Unit for supporting pupils whose needs can effect theirs and others learning

In addition the ALN Department coordinate a provision for pupils to support mobility needs (MOVE)
