We have a diverse student body with many different nationalities and over 25 different languages represented.
The school has provision to help EAL children to develop their acquisition of English. The provision provided is dependent on the individual needs of the child:
Introduction to English: For those who arrive with little, or no English. This is a structured programme.
Talking Partners: For those with basic everyday language.
Small Group Work: For those needing support in specific areas, such as maths, grammar, topic and writing.
In Class: For those needing language development, under the guidance of the year group teachers.
Details of any particular programme are available from Mrs Ryder.
