Here at Templars Primary School we are proud to welcome families from a wealth of different cultures and backgrounds and we greatly value the rich diversity of our school community. We have pupils from all around the world and over 37 languages spoken at home.
When a pupil arrives at Templars, with the support of parents we complete a Pupil Assessment Profile this identifies a pupil’s strengths and weakness and supports us in setting targets to support them with their acquisition of language. During their time at our school, our EAL (English as an Additional Language) pupils are closely monitored for their progress in the curriculum and their acquisition of English. We add to the Pupil Assessment Profile to track progress.
In class we provide support for our EAL pupils at the level they can access, this includes using visuals, translated materials and intervention support to boost vocabulary and communication as required.
