Welcome to the Faculty of Additional Learning Needs
At Ysgol Brynhyfryd, we are very proud of the offering and support we put in place for our pupils and their families regarding all aspects of Additional Learning Needs and Inclusion. We are an inclusive school and deeply committed to removing the barriers to learning and participation for all of our pupils.
Our Additional Learning Needs team comprises of Ms Haf Wildermuth (Additional Learning Needs Coordinator), Miss Heather Lewis (Assistant Additional Learning Needs Coordinator) and eleven highly skilled Teaching Assistants. This team ensures that children receive personalised interventions and pastoral care, whether it be for their social and emotional needs, cognition and learning needs, physical and medical needs or language and communication needs. We support teachers and parents to identify and meet the needs of every child and work closely with wider agencies to identify Additional Learning Needs and then put in place plans and packages of support to help meet these needs.
Should you have any questions or queries regarding Additional Learning Needs provision at school, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can do this by contacting the school on 01824 703933 or email
