EAL (English as Additional Language)
We take pride in being a fully inclusive school, promoting excellence in education regardless of cultural, ethnic or linguistic background.
All students for whom English is an additional language are offered support as appropriate. For many students this is a very light-touch support with occasional interventions – especially in preparing for assessments and public examinations.
For students whose English language skills require more intensive support, a programme will be put in place by the school’s SENCO and Support Team, including EFL-trained staff.
The programme is tailored to each individual based on specific need and will be woven into the student’s timetable. This ensures that students are not excluded from the mainstream curriculum and enables full inclusion and language development.
