ALNCos have to have a robust system in place for the screening and assessment of pupils who may need access arrangements in their exams and assessments. In a large school or a school with high rate of pupils with additional learning needs, this can be a very stressful time for the ALNCo.
We can take the stress out of this by providing an experienced professional with over 20 years working in the field of SEN, who will provide a fast and highly efficient service, tailored to your schools exact requirements.
