EAL (English as an Additional Language)

The EAL department welcomes students from diverse backgrounds. Students are well supported, make rapid progress and we provide a caring environment for those new to school and literacy.

We run a four-week induction programme for new arrivals to the UK, teaching them what they need to participate in the classroom. We offer small group interventions in English and teach collaboratively across the curriculum to assist children in realising their potential. We use our programme to monitor the progress of all our bilingual pupils, seeing their varied experience as an asset for our Academy. 

There are two useful websites for our EAL learners:
