ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE

Wexham School is a culturally diverse school. Over fifty languages are spoken at home among our students, who come from different ethnic backgrounds

Students who have recently arrived in the UK attend an induction programme for two to five lessons per week. This is designed to provide pupils with the basic skills necessary for participation within the mainstream.

In addition, there is language support for bilingual pupils with EAL needs through a less intensive withdrawal programme. A variety of differentiated learning resources can be introduced, increasing access to the curriculum.

There is an Extra Curricular EAL club after school to further support students.

EAL is a growing need within our students and we are further developing the support we have on offer to them.
