What are 'Additional Learning Needs?'
The term 'additional learning needs' (ALN) is wider in scope then 'special educational needs' (SEN.) It encompasses all children whose learning needs are greater than their peers, but do not necessarily amount to SEN. Children with ALN are struggling to learn, for whatever reason, so need support. They may have/be, for example:
NB: 'More Able & Talented.' This is separate from ALN. Children who are more able & talented are NOT considered to have ALN unless they have SEN!
