P-05-920 School Budgeting for ALN
This petition was submitted by Iwan Williams having collected a total of 106 signatures.
Text of Petition
We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge Welsh Government to allocate an additional budget for schools across Wales, to be able to provide the additional learning needed for pupils with additional learning needs (ALN) and achieve the objectives of the Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act 2018.
Schools lack resources for supporting pupils with additional learning needs to ensure they achieve their potential.
The Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act 2018 states:
"A person has additional learning needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability (whether the learning difficulty or disability arises from a medical condition or otherwise) which calls for additional learning provision."
Schools do not currently have sufficient resources to be able to offer the additional learning provision that their pupils need.
