EAL (English as an Additional Language)

We aim to make appropriate provision of teaching and resources for pupils with EAL and for raising achievement of ethnic minority groups who are at risk from underachieving. We will identify individual pupils' needs, recognising skills they bring to our school and ensuring that they have equal access to the curriculum. By this we aim to ensure that all EAL pupils are able to understand English confidently and competently, use English as a means of learning across the curriculum and where appropriate, make use of their knowledge of other languages.
