English as an Additional Language (EAL)
In Primary, English as an additional Language (EAL) support is provided within the context of the primary classroom. Homeroom and language support teachers plan together to deliver what individual students need to access the curriculum within the classroom setting. In some cases, a child may be provided individual or small group instruction outside of the classroom.
Beginning in P6, all students are assessed on their level of English language acquisition. Through diagnostic assessment and classroom performance indicators, if a student is identified as in need of EAL support, it is provided by a specialist EAL teacher. This is done in a pull-out and in-class model. If a student is identified as requiring additional support in English, a nominal fee is charged.
