Additional Learning Needs

      Olchfa is an inclusive school and we strive to ensure that pupils with additional learning needs are able to fulfil their potential and be active members of the school community. Pupils with additional learning needs are integrated into mainstream mixed ability form groups.

      Those requiring additional support may be supported in class by our team of Teaching Assistants or extracted from some lessons for literacy, numeracy or specialist dyslexia support. The school is home to a specialist teaching facility for pupils with a hearing impairment.

      We understand that changing schools can cause particular anxiety for some pupils with additional learning needs and their families. If your son or daughter has an additional learning need, you are welcome to contact Mr Robert Williams at the school, who is the senior member of staff with responsibility for ALN, to arrange to visit the school.
