Our School

English as an Additional Language Training

Our EAL Coordinator is a consultant for the Local Authority and regularly attends meetings with other secondary schools in Leeds. She delivers EAL teacher training for a number of Universities and Teaching Alliances.

We are highly regarded for our EAL good practice and regularly advise other schools who come to visit our department. Our EAL team is experienced and regularly attend training sessions to keep up to date on the latest developments.

Whole school training

Training teaching staff in the needs of EAL learners is a vital part of supporting our EAL learners. EAL training is part of the new staff induction and this is enhanced by other regular focused training sessions. We have EAL Champions within most departments and staff are now able to adapt their own materials to better support EAL learners.

EAL Peer Mentors/Sixth Form EAL Mentors

A number of Sixth Form and Key Stage 4 pupils who were once new to the country themselves have been trained to support new to English EAL pupils. They regularly support with learning, homework clubs, translation and interpreting for parents and are an invaluable asset to the school.
