Universal Provision

The Universal Provision offered at Llanharan Primary School.

Llanharan Primary School provides a broad, balanced and enquiry based curriculum for pupils. When planning, teachers set suitable and differentiated learning challenges and respond to children’s diverse learning needs.

Teachers take account of these requirements and make provision, where necessary, to support individuals or groups of children and thus enable them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities.

During their journey through primary school, many pupils may need periods of additional support through programmes such as Language Link, CatchUp Literacy, Catchup Numeracy, Literacy Launchpad or Thrive. These programmes are offered as universal (core) provision to all pupils at the point when required. A pupil who receives a short focussed period of support will not be deemed as having ALN and will not be receipt of an Individual Development Plan (IDP).

The Disability Discrimination Act identifies the fact that some pupils with disabilities may have learning difficulties that call for special educational provision. However, not all children defined as disabled will require this provision. A child with asthma or diabetes, for example, may not have additional learning needs, but may still have rights under the Disability Discrimination Act. We will assess each child as required, and make the appropriate provision, based on their identified needs.
