The new ALN Code will be rolled out into schools from September 2021 for children who are newly identified as having additional learning needs. However, for those children who have already identified SEN via school action or school action plus, the new system will apply from January 1st 2022.
The transformed system will:
ensure that all learners with ALN are supported to overcome barriers to learning and achieve their full potential
improve the planning and delivery of support for learners from 0 to 25 with ALN, placing learners’ needs, views, wishes and feelings at the heart of the process
focus on the importance of identifying needs early and putting in place timely and effective interventions which are monitored and adapted to ensure they deliver the desired outcomes.
