English as an Additional Language
The English as an Additional Language (EAL) advisory team provides online resources, advice and guidance to support schools and settings with pupils learning English as an Additional Language.
Pupils learning English as an Additional Language have a different learning experience because they are learning in another language, and because they may come from cultural backgrounds and communities that have different understandings and expectations of education, language and learning.
