The East Norfolk ALS Team

Each year we provide support for around 300 students with a wide variety of learning needs and disabilities.
We have established strong provision for learners with a wide range of needs including autism, specific learning difficulties, physical and sensory impairments and mental health needs.

Our integrated provision covers welfare, pastoral and learning support services.

We work closely with partner schools and other institutions through transition planning between school and college to make sure we are aware of learning support needs as soon as possible so that we develop appropriate plans for students.

We are happy to make visits to schools and other institutions to support the transition process.

Once students with identified needs arrive at EN they can be offered a range of distinct support provision within the Additional Learning Support team, in addition to the wider support arrangements within curriculum, pastoral and welfare teams.

Examples of the range of support which might be offered are:

  • Mentoring
  • Literacy, Language and Numeracy workshops
  • In-class support for Maths, Science and English at Level 1 and 2
  • Accessible information
  • Access to therapies/outside agencies
  • Personalised support packages for learners with high needs
  • Quiet spaces for study and time out
  • Assistive technologies and loan equipment
  • Study programmes for social communication
  • Sport and hobbies
  • Mental health wellbeing
  • English as an additional language
  • Employability skills and work placements
  • Trained assessors in College who can assess learners for Exam Access Arrangements
