EAL

The provision for English as an additional language (EAL) and Ethnic Minority is Talking Partners. It is also used to build confidence with speaking and listening in other children. The impact this program has on children is that they become risk takers in their work, participate more during speaking and listening during whole class time, this helping to raise their attainment levels. This is an intervention that runs for 10 weeks, three times a week. This provision monitors and tracks the children as they progress through the school. It uses the Renfrew testing to access the children's progress in developing information and grammar skills. The EAL coordinator Mrs Gorry . She is supported by Mrs Winston who runs Talking Partners.
