LIVE ONLINE: No Longer ALN… No IEP… So What Next Then?! (Afternoon 1pm-3.30pm)

Course date: 21st Feb 2024

The Additional Learning Needs transformation programme came into practice on 1st 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 providing reasonable adjustments in daily classroom practice, this may be enough to meet the needs of most learners but how do we know?

Many questions still exist around how to track those pupils who previously were classed as SA/SA+ and were monitored through IEPs and other formalised methods.

We will explore how to adapt our approach with those pupils who are in the ‘grey area’ and look at how to ensure we know if their needs are continuing to be met appropriately.
