AEN stands for Additional Educational Need. A child may have an identified need for a period of time or for the duration of their school career. An additional need may be identified due to a cognitive, behaviour, social and emotional or physical delay or difficulty.


At St David’s we are committed to ensuring all children, regardless of background or ability, are able to thrive and achieve their full potential in a nurturing and inclusive environment.


We apply rigorous identification, assessment and monitoring procedures based on the All Wales Code of Practice and current Welsh Government regulations centred on the whole child and ensure these are applied effectively across the school.


We work closely with families and a variety of external agencies such as Educational Psychology teams, SpLD advisory services and mental health organisations such as CAMHS to develop Individual Development Plans (IDPs).
