NAFWC 47/2006 - Inclusion and Pupil Support Guidance
The guidance replaces that currently contained in National Assembly for Wales Circular 3/99: Pupil Support and Social Inclusion. Guidance on tackling bullying (Respecting Others: National Assembly for Wales Circular 23/2003) and exclusions (National Assembly for Wales Circular 1 and 1A/2004) has previously been distributed. Whilst the guidance itself is not statutory it sets out the specific legislation which local authorities,
schools and their partners are required to adhere to.
In summary, the main changes to previous guidance are as follows:
- Presentation of a framework for inclusion to promote access to education for all and remove any barriers to learning.
- Adoption of the term ‘Additional Learning Needs’ to cover those learners whose needs are greater than the majority of their peers.
- Reflection of recent policy developments, including new arrangements under the Children Act 2004, Learning Pathways 14-19, and the Early and Extending Entitlement agendas.
- Bringing attendance, behaviour and anti-bullying policies together within a whole-school approach.
- More extensive guidance on providing support to pupils with additional learning needs.
- Specific annexes containing additional information such as checklists for inclusive practices.
- New attendance registration codes - previously sent separately to all schools in May 2004.
- The introduction of school-level attendance targets for primary schools and for these to be set on all absences as opposed to unauthorised absences.
- Increased emphasis on improving the level and use of information available on pupils receiving education outside the school setting as well as those pupils moving or joining schools.
- New section on LAs and schools’ responsibilities for those pupils who are educated at home by parents.
- New guidance on provision of education for young parents.
- Guidance on new provisions under the Anti Social Behaviour Act, 2003 for Parenting Orders for behaviour problems and Parenting Contracts for poor attendance and behaviour problems.
