From the initial enquiry to a school from the parents or carers, through the induction process to full integration into class the Equality Diversity Inclusion Team (EDIT) support staff in schools and settings to ensure that the needs of newly arrived pupils with English as an additional language are assessed, targets set, actions put in place and next steps planned to accelerate progress and raise achievement.
During this training staff will:
- develop an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of staff in developing a whole-school approach to the induction and continuing support of new arrival pupils with English as an additional language
- develop an understanding of the challenges facing new arrivals with English as an additional language and how these can be overcome by effective support in their early days at school
- have the opportunity to discuss inclusive teaching strategies that will engage newly arrived pupils with English as an additional language in their learning of both the English language and curriculum content.
