Supporting new arrivals with English as an additional language

This training will help accelerate the progress of English as an additional language pupils from induction to engagement in class.

New Arrivals: English as an Additional Language Learners, Refugees and Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children and Young People

The Equality Diversity Inclusion Team - EDIT (formally ISSK - Inclusion Support Service Kent) offer direct advice to schools, including centralised and bespoke training, to ensure that the needs of newly arrived pupils with English as an additional language are met.  From the initial enquiry to a school from the parents or carers, through the induction process to full integration into class, this bespoke and centralised training will explore the key challenges facing newly arrived pupils with English as an additional language starting school in the United Kingdom and provide delegates with strategies to overcome these.

During this session 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 they can be supported in their early days at school
  • have the opportunity to discuss inclusive teaching strategies that will engage newly arrival pupils with English as an additional language in their learning of both the English language and curriculum content.
