Additional Learning Needs

Our Deputy Head, Mrs Liz Davies, is also our dedicated ALNCO. Mrs Davies works from Monday to Thursday inclusive.


Sometimes children need a little extra help with their learning. Here at HVCS, our teachers monitor progress carefully and identify any difficulties as early as possible, providing extra support when needed.


We have a positive and inclusive ‘whole’ school approach to the education and development of all children. Our aim is to enhance their self-esteem and increase their self-confidence, helping each child achieve their full potential.


Children may be given an Individual Target by their Class Teacher and take part in individual/small group work. We also offer booster sessions, including Headsprouts Reading Programme, Catch-up, Dynamo Maths and Nessy. Nurture sessions and groups are used to support pupil wellbeing across the school.


Please note: Parents are consulted at every stage and we follow Local Authority advice when appropriate.
