EAL

EAL (English as an Additional Language)

 

At St. Stephen’s Church of England Primary School our pupils come from a range of cultural backgrounds and as a school we have 13 different home languages. The vast majority of our pupils are of Asian heritage. We also have a number of children entering school from main land Europe many of whom start school with very little or no English. At our school over 96% of our pupils are learning English as an additional language which is why we aim to celebrate EAL across school.

 

Our Aim

All pupils need to feel safe and secure, accepted and valued in order to learn. This includes valuing every learner’s home language and background. As a school we recognise that bilingualism is a strength that EAL pupils should be proud of. As a school we recognise that it is important to raise an awareness of the different languages and cultural backgrounds our pupils have and to celebrate these in many ways. Classrooms are socially and intellectually inclusive here at St Stephen’s, valuing cultural differences and fostering a range of cultural identities.
