At Bare Trees Primary School, we are very proud to celebrate the rich heritages and cultures that we have in school. Our EAL learners come from very diverse backgrounds, with our families currently speaking 22 different languages.
Our pupils are all learning English at different stages and teaching and learning in school reflects this. We want all of our pupils to become fluent in English – both at a social and an academic level and we value the extent that families contribute to this.
There are lots of valuable online resources that can help support learning English as an additional language, but please don’t forget the home language! A strong home language is absolutely crucial in helping pupils to learn English.
