English as an Additional Language (EAL)
English as an Additional Language – EAL
At Adswood Primary School we have an exciting and diverse school community. We take every opportunity to enable all our pupils to share their own cultural and ethnic knowledge enriching our pupils’ learning and understanding of the world.
English as an Additional Language is for any pupil who heard a different language than English when they were born. It is also for pupils who do not know any English language.
Once a pupil has been registered as EAL the school will assess and monitor each pupil throughout the year. We assess to ensure we can identify any gaps in knowledge and target these gaps with appropriate strategies and interventions.
At Adswood Primary school we are focused on delivering rich and diverse English language opportunities for all of our pupils
