EAL (English an an Additional Language)

We embrace the diversity in our school.  We have a focused Languages Week annually, where members of the community are invited into school to share their languages and traditions with the children. The week culminates with a very popular food festival, where everyone gets to celebrate the rich diversity of the community.

We support children with English as an additional language by providing small, focused intervention groups with specialised teachers (EMAS) and BLAs (Bi-lingual Assistants) to support their language and communication needs. We have a buddy system to ensure that all students feel they are in a safe, welcoming, nurturing environment where they are accepted, valued and encouraged to participate in the life of the school. We aim for children to use English confidently and competently in a range of contexts and as a means of learning across the curriculum.
