Support for EAL and International Newly Arrived Students
74% of Tower Hamlets students have English as an additional language (EAL), more than any other borough in London.
First Language Assessments are offered for EAL students not making progress and for International Newly Arrived students.
An assessment can provide schools with more clarity on an individual pupil's language needs and identify if there is a learning need. It can help schools to plan appropriately for the student.
The service can also provide training, tuition for students, school briefing sessions, and interpreting as and when needed on a pay as you need basis.
