English as an Additional Language (EAL)
Please refer to the Inclusion Policy for details of EAL Support https://www.nrps.co.uk/key-information/school-policies
Nancy Reuben Primary School has a proportion of children who speak English as and Additional Language. These children are mostly Ivrit (Hebrew) speakers. The overwhelming majority of children arrive conversant in English and with a good understanding. Very occasionally, a child will arrive with little or no English. On arrival, such pupils will be assessed to ascertain their level of spoken and written English.
The school will then liaise with the parents of these children to agree on a plan of action overseen by the Inclusion Leader.
EAL support is provided to individual pupils where needed by teachers and TAs. We also use staff many of whom are are fluent Ivrit speakers and we have many children who are fully bilingual who help their peers.
If support in other languages is required, this is discussed prior to admission and the appropriate support plan agreed. The costs associated with this support will be part of the admissions conditions and this will be discussed with the Admissions Governors at the time an application is being considered.
