English Additional Language (EAL)

Children with English as an Additional Language

At Stopsley Community Primary school all children with English as an additional language (EAL) are taught in an inclusive and stimulating environment. Class teachers are prepared with a range of strategies to ensure children are able to learn and access all areas of the curriculum. The children work within the class to have the opportunity to socialise and interact with their peers supporting them in learning English. Children who are new to English have access to an EAL app called FlashAcademy. This gives children the opportunity to learn basic English skills to support them with their learning and everyday life.
