We want to ensure that every child can successfully access all elements of our curriculum, regardless of their level of English language skill when they first arrive. Therefore, we have developed a strong yet flexible EAL curriculum designed to support all children – from complete beginners who are just starting to discover the language, the those who are already having experiences in speaking and learning in English.
Upon arrival, we ensure that each new child is evaluated in all areas of their English language capacity: reading, speaking and listening, to ensure that we place them in the most appropriate ability grouping where they will be able to progress most effectively.
Our teachers are experienced language educationalists and focus on the development of English skills regardless of the activity. Whether they are competing on the sports field, performing on the stage, enjoying leisure time in the playground or learning in the classroom, SNA children quickly acquire the skills needed to become linguistically confident in all aspects of the English language.
