English Language Support
For all children with English as an additional language (EAL) we strive to help them become confident and effective learners who contribute fully to the Pinkwell community.
This vision is at the forefront of all of our teaching and learning of EAL learners in our school.
At Pinkwell Primary School we are proud that we speak 49 different languages and that 64% of our children speak or are learning to speak English as an additional language.
We provide a welcoming, accepting ethos which celebrates children's diversity.
We are passionate about meeting the needs of all our children for whom English may be their second, third or possibly fourth language whilst at the same time encouraging them to develop and use their home language.
We build positive partnerships with parents and carers and are committed to strengthening the links we make with home and school.
We regularly celebrate our cultural diversity with various events for all the family throughout the year as well as offering a range of English Language courses for our Parents and Carers.
If you would like to get involved and help us to prepare our pupils to thrive in a diverse and multicultural world you can do this by sharing some of your culture's heritage with our pupils. If this is something you’d like to be involved in we would be delighted to hear from you.
