Additional Learning Needs (ALN)
At Shebbear, we believe that all of our pupils should be given the opportunity to excel in whatever they choose to do. Our Additional Learning Needs (ALN) Faculty is a busy and thriving part of our school which offers opportunities to pupils with any sort of additional learning need to enable them to reach their academic potential, from Academic Support to our High Achievers' Pathway.
The ALN is a visible department in school and works closely with the other Heads of Faculty and the Housemasters / mistresses to ensure the needs of every student are catered for. So whether a pupil has special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), is studying English as an Additional Language (EAL) or are identified as accelerated or high ability learners, we will work with them on a personalised programme, using various methods to teach them in the way that they learn so that learning becomes fun and engaging!
