Children arriving with English as an additional language quickly find their feet in our supportive culture through classroom routines which repeat familiar words, utilise visual images, and incorporate gestures and actions.
Teachers carefully plan individualised strategies to ensure that children who are beginning to learn English can access every aspect of our curriculum. Our highly-qualified EAL teachers provide support where needed, coming into the classroom environment to ensure that students feel calm and comfortable when developing their language skills. Small group or one-to-one sessions for children with English as an additional language focus on personal, social and emotional development (PSED), prioritising every child’s ability to express themselves and their emotions. Our caring and nurturing attitude to these students ensures that every EAL student goes on to make outstanding academic progress.
