Special Educational Needs

Learning Support and Individual Needs

“Provision for pupils with additional learning needs is a particularly strong feature of the school.” Estyn

Elfed High School welcomes students from all backgrounds and provides for the individual needs of students.

We consider the welfare of each individual very carefully and put the right educational arrangements in place to meet each student’s needs.

The Additional Learning Needs team supports students and their families, keeping to the Welsh Assembly Government Code of Conduct. We monitor their progress, support their learning and have regular feedback meetings with parents and carers.

Teaching Assistants support students who benefit from individual attention whilst others are taught in small groups with the support of specialist teachers.

Elfed High School has extra resources for students with a range of additional learning needs. The Base is our additional needs resource where we plan and provide extra support.

Please contact Mrs Rosemary Jones, Headteacher to discuss your child’s needs by e mailing post@elfedhs.co.uk or telephoning 01244 550217.
