English as an additional language (EAL)
ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE (EAL) - AT OAK GREEN SCHOOL
At Oak Green we know that language cannot be separated from identity and that it is important that the first language of every child and their culture is acknowledged and recognised. We believe that pupils need to feel safe, accepted and valued in order to learn. We are aware that bilingualism is a strength and that EAL pupils have a valuable contribution to make. We have responsibility for supporting and encouraging children to become fluent English speakers and for communicating school expectations for writing, reading and speaking.
