Our EAL pathway
French speaking pupils who are new to English from CP to CM2 have the support of an additional EAL (English as an Additional Language) teacher. The EAL teacher runs intensive English classes at the start of the school year 3 times a week during class time and at midday. The EAL teacher also accompanies EAL children for certain lessons during regular English class time. Children who follow the EAL pathway also benefit from a place in an after-school English homework club.
This pathway is an extension of the French-English pathway, with complementary components. The objectives for children’s learning in this pathway are set by the classroom teacher.
