English as an additional language

Our statement on the educational and welfare provision for pupils with special educational needs or for pupils for whom English is an additional language.

All pupils attending the Integrated Learning Space (ILS) will have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). The curriculum outlined in the curriculum section of this website outlines the educational provision made for them.

For some of the pupils attending the ILS, English is an additional language. The curriculum is planned for each individual and where appropriate this is taken into account when determining the educational programme to be delivered. The school has access to a number of native language speakers and where appropriate these adults can support the learning of pupils in their home language. They are also able to offer support and advice on how pupils may access learning opportunities.

Where appropriate translators are commissioned for meetings with parents to ensure that all are able to make a full contribution to the meeting.
