New to English / Eary Acquisition EAL Students
New To English ( NTE)/Early Acquisition (EA) students and their parent / carers will have an admission meeting with an EAL teacher and start school with a week-long Induction course staffed by EAL teachers and Student Support Workers ( SSWs) a number of whom are bilingual themselves- and by science / resource centre staff.
The Induction course welcomes the students giving varied opportunities to learn about the school and develop English skills working in a small group setting. Students are also assessed in order to set targets to ensure rapid progress in improving their English.
The Induction finishes on a Friday and parents/carers are invited to a graduation ceremony where students showcase new skills and receive a certificate.
'Exit' information about the students' skills and areas for development is shared with all staff before students finish their Induction week, to support progress in mainstream lessons.
Following graduation students start mainstream timetables, accessing New To English classes in English, as well as other curriculum subjects appropriate to their year. NTE / EA classes focus on communication in English, particularly speaking and listening, with initial literacy in English and a weekly reading lesson.
New To English students also receive in class support across the wider curriculum, as appropriate.
