Statutory Reform of Additional Learning Needs


Following a number of important children and young people committee meetings, the Welsh Government came to the conclusion that the current Additional Learning Needs legislation was no longer fit for its intended purpose and undertook a series of reviews. As a result, it was decided to introduce new legislation to revise the way children and young people with Additional Learning Needs are supported.

As part of these changes, the six local authorities across South West Wales have been working together to develop more consistent approaches.

It is really important that all partners work together in order to ensure we get the best outcomes for our children and young people. To do this, it is vital to hear from parents and carers of children with Additional Learning Needs. There will be a number of opportunities for you to contribute to the process.
