ambitious for the future
At Heathfield Schools' Partnership we are committed to making appropriate provision of teaching and resources for pupils for whom English is an Additional Language, and in raising their achievement to meet their personal & National Curriculum targets.
The school identifies that the individual needs of pupils are varied. These needs might include (but are not limited to): higher order reading and listening comprehension skills, developing more sophisticated vocabulary and building phrases in speaking and writing.
At present, 32 languages are spoken at our school by pupils, staff and their families, which presents a wide and diverse language community.
At Heathfield, our aim is to raise the attainment of EAL children by giving them access to the full curriculum. This is currently in evidence through the following approaches:
We are committed to supporting EAL students at all levels of proficiency. The above provisions are arranged by our EAL Coordinator. If you have any questions relating to EAL support in our school, please contact Mrs Simi Pathal.
