English as Additional Support
We value and celebrate our school’s diversity and provide appropriate support in order for children to become confident, independent learners and global citizens. Our English as an Additional Language team is there to support your child to engage with the curriculum if they require support in English.
All children that join our school with no or limited knowledge of English will receive English as an Additional Language (EAL) to accelerate their English development and allow them to fully access the curriculum.
During their first 6 weeks at BEPS, the beginners participate in the EAL “Fun Club” and receive daily a “Survival English” lesson to help them settle into our English speaking environment. After this period, and according to the child’s level, the Learning Support team and Class Teacher will recommend the appropriate number of EAL sessions for the rest of the year. Parents will be informed before the sessions begin and will receive feedback on progress at the end of each term. The number of EAL sessions is reviewed on a termly basis.
