English as an Additional Language

isaworld(7)

At Hullavington Primary School we celebrate the rich diversity of languages spoken within our school community. We work in close partnership with our families to ensure our school presents a welcoming, inclusive culture and aim to celebrate the cultural, linguistic and religious experience that children bring from home.

Staff at Hullavington support English as an additional language learners in their acquisition of English in many ways. Careful assessment identifies the child's stage of development and strategies are used to support and scaffold further learning. In addition children are actively encouraged to use their home languages in school because we know this will not only assist their development in both languages but will help to build a strong sense of personal identity and self esteem.
