Build up confidence in your EAL students

  • In inner London, around 54% of students are recorded as learning English as an additional language. 
  • More than 200 languages are spoken in the homes of children attending schools in England. 
  • EAL students are less likely to achieve 5 GCSE's A*-C including English and Maths.
