English as an Additional Language

Orchard Academy EAL statistics 2018

 

This year at Orchard Academy we have 146 (44%) children who speak English as an additional language at home. Across the school there are 27 different languages spoken from around the world:

 

We ensure that the school learning environment, teaching and learning and communication with all is as visual, interesting, engaging and informative as possible. Children’s competency in the English language is assessed and monitored during their time in our school. Where appropriate, additional strategies, support and interventions will be implemented to ensure that all children achieve their potential.
