Ethnic Minority Achievement (EMA) is supported by our Inclusion Manager who gives appropriate additional support to children whose first language is not English. Providing support to staff with strategies and resources to cater for the needs of children who have English as an Additional Language (EAL) as well as working with small groups outside the classroom.
All staff respect and place value on cultural diversity. We acknowledge the importance of home languages as well as developing the language needed to access the National Curriculum.
Children in our school are well supported by staff and, most importantly, their peers and quickly become confident in English. Teachers have high expectations of bilingual children and are able to recognise potential in spite of language differences.
