EAL help

To all parents and carers,

I am delighted to be joining the teaching team at St Mary’s as the Specialist Lead for EAL pupils.  I have worked in the very diverse boroughs of Newham, Tower Hamlets and Barking and Dagenham for the last 7 years training teachers to ensure their classroom practice celebrates and includes children from all over the world.  I am very much looking forward to working with teaching and support staff at St Mary’s to ensure our children receive the very best provision in class.  

For the next few weeks I will be looking at resources available to pupils and teachers and how effective they are in supporting our EAL learners.  I will also be asking for the views of pupils, parents/carers, support staff and teachers to find out what St Mary’s does really well and what areas we need to improve. 

Please remember that our website can be translated into many different languages.

I shall look forward to working more closely with pupils, parents/carers, staff and governors at St Mary’s.

Your ideas really do matter.
