EAL guidelines

The Outreach Teacher for English as an Additional Language is often seen supporting bilingual pupils in the classroom but not always involved in planning or capacity building. It is hoped that the EAL SERVICE GUIDELINES FOR SCHOOLS will outline the full scope of the service.

The document explains:

  • the various roles of the EAL teacher
  • timetabling
  • referrals
  • prioritisation
  • advice on planning support and preparing for new pupils
  • additional information and resources
