Assessment for Additional Learning Needs in the Mainstream setting
Presenter: Angela Coates,
Location: SOUTH WALES: Future Inn, Cardiff Bay, Hemmingway Road, CF104AU

The Additional Learning Needs transformation programme came into practice on the 1st of September 2021. The idea was to create a unified approach for young people from the age of 0-25.

An important part of this system is accurate and relevant assessment of Additional Learning Needs of pupils already identified as needing extra support. It is also important to develop screening systems within the mainstream setting in order to recognise needs in pupils that might not be presenting their additional learning needs in an obvious way in class.

We will explore different Assessments and ensure that practitioners have a plethora of tools to assist in ascertaining the needs of all pupils.
