English as an Additional Language

The term EAL (English as an Additional Language) is used when referring to pupils whose main language at home is a language other than English. At TCP we aim to work together to meet the full range of needs of these children and their families, ensuring they all feel valued in the Tarleton community.

We assess the skills and needs of pupils with EAL on admission and provide appropriate provision according to their needs. A range of different strategies are used to support children as they develop fluency for the English language, thus enhancing both their social and academic experiences within the school environment.
