EAL Students

We welcome our new arrivals and EAL (English as an Additional Language) students through an initial meeting with an interpreter where possible.  On arrival they are assigned a student Buddy to befriend them.  During the first days in school we assess their needs and then set up a support programme.  This could be withdrawal lessons for extra English, in-class support or additional study lessons.  We provide bi-lingual dictionaries for every student.  We enter them where appropriate/available for first language GCSEs  and ESOL qualifications.
