English as an Additional Language (EAL)
Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy is proud of its diverse pupil base.
18.58% of pupils at Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy have English as an additional language. There are many different languages spoken by families in the school.
The school aims to integrate all new children into the school and the customs of their country with sensitivity, care and consideration. The school is aware that many of our EAL children come from countries where there is conflict have experienced trauma. This is taken into consideration when planning for individuals needs.
Teachers ensure that pupils can participate in lessons and have awareness of good practice in providing for pupils with English as an additional language within the whole school setting. The school endeavours to provide individual and small group intervention to support the acquisition of the English language.
