EAL Training

Central Primary School has approximately 80% EAL learners on role and we have a wide and varied experience with working with children learning English as an Additional Language. Central Primary works as part of a local cluster of schools to provide English as an Additional Language training and support. Throuogh the EAL network group we can provide the following training and support for schools, teachers and support staff working with EAL pupils, including those new to English and England.  

Staff Twilight INSET Training (£250 per INSET, 1 hour 15 minutes)

  • EAL friendly classrooms
  • Supporting New to English (N2E) pupils
