Inclusion & Achievement


Welcome to the Inclusion and Achievement Team page. 


At Roath Park Primary we work to ensure that children feel happy, successful and safe in school. Sometimes some children or families need extra support to make sure of this. The I&A team work together to provide children with extra support and interventions to help develop their learning, behavior or emotional skills. We work to allow all pupils the opportunity to achieve their personal potential, feel confident in their own ability and nurture a love of learning. 


Our team consists of 13 members of staff that support our Additional Learning Needs pupils (ALN), both within the classroom and through planned support sessions in other areas like the Learning Loft, the Inclusion Pod and the Bubble Room. 


If you are concerned about your child and the progress he/she is making then please speak to their class teacher or Mrs Rigby.

How can I Help My Child?


  • Check the year group page of your child which is updated regularly.
  • Read with your child as much as possible at home. Speak to Mrs Ivens if you want to chat about this.
  • Speak to your child's class teacher about their Cornerstones topic and spend time with your child researching the topic and talking about what they are learning in class.
  • Sit with your child to complete any homework sent home.
  • A New Welsh Government Campaign: "Bedtime without the battles, shopping without the stropping".
  • The Welsh Government campaign 'Education Begins at Home'.

ALN Reform

Wales' system for supporting children and young people with additional learning needs (ALN) is changing!



The Bill has just been introduced into the National Assembly for Wales and is in preliminary stages of scrutiny. In a written Statement the Minister for Lifelong Learning said:


"The Bill proposes a complete overhaul of the system for supporting children and young people with additional learning needs, which will affect nearly every early years, school and further education setting in Wales".  


"The Bill builds on what works well in the current system, whilst targeting directly the concerns with it.  It outlines a bold new approach for supporting learners with additional learning needs; an approach that is fit for an ambitious, 21st century Wales in which the learning of all children and young people is prioritised".
