At Ysgol Capelulo, our Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator or ALNCO is Miss Carpenter.

Miss Carpenter took over the role of ALNco in January 2022.

During this time she has undertaken a wide range of training and professional development opportunities which has enabled her to gain a wealth of knowledge and understanding of difficulties children with ALN face and how best we can support them at school. 

Her role is fundamentally to identify and support those children who have specific needs, whether it be learning, physical or medical, who require additional support to access education and reach their full potential. 

She works closely with parents, staff and external agencies, all of whom have the best interests of the child at the heart of what we provide. Partnership working like this has shown to be greatly beneficial in empowering children to achieve and to be confident self-assured learners. 

Within school, Miss Carpenter manages a variety of interventions put in place to improve and enhance children’s learning experiences. These are either led by her or our wonderful support staff. We recognise that each child here at Capelulo is an individual, all of whom have unique skills and abilities, and so intervention targets are set based on those. Each child is encouraged to take ownership of their learning and to take an active role in setting their learning targets. 

If you have any concerns or worries, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Carpenter at school on 01492 622693.
