ALN Act and Code

The Welsh Government has passed new legislation, called the Additional Learning Needs (Wales) Act and Additional Learning Needs Code, which replaces all the legislation and guidance about Special Educational Needs. 

As a school, we have a duty to include the following on our website:

12.6 (b) — information about how to access the responsible LA’s arrangements for providing people with information and advice about ALN and the ALN system

12.13 (c) — details of the responsible LA’s arrangements for the avoidance and resolution of disagreements and its independent advocacy services

           (d) — information about the rights to request the responsible LA to re-consider the matter and contact details of the responsible LA 


Here is the link to the ALN part of the Vale website which is also currently being updated with all the information you need to know and how to access support.

Below are some useful documents, including QR codes with more information.
