As a department we hope to benefit EAL students and their performance in all subjects as they develop the language and literacy skills to engage with the whole of the curriculum. We prioritise support in classes for new arrivals and their needs.
Specialist EAL support is available for EAL students and all new arrivals from qualified teacher and HLTA.
- More advanced learners of English have access to continuing support via ‘in class support’ in line with their varying needs as they develop competencies over time.
- Appropriate intervention is available to specific groups and individuals.
- Any withdrawal of EAL learners from a mainstream class will be for a specific purpose and period of time, to develop language skills ensuring they receive a broad and balanced curriculum.
