English as an Additional Language

The aim of the EAL provision at BBIS is to remove barriers that might stand in the way of our EAL students’ learning and educational achievement while having minimal impact on their everyday school life and, ensuring they can participate as fully as possible in the curriculum. By providing our EAL pupils with a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment where they are accepted, valued and encouraged, we aim to raise the level of English to a standard where they no longer need EAL support. By developing knowledge and skills to use, understand and produce academic written language as well as promoting a variety of strategies to enhance verbal communication in diverse curriculum and social contexts, we ensure an appropriate progression of linguistic skills is in place.
