Bristol Metropolitan Academy highlights the changes it has made in its school ethos and curriculum to support EAL students.
Over 50 per cent of the student population at the school are EAL students, and the school has introduced several methods to encourage and develop their learning.
Students can now take GCSEs in Arabic and Polish and the culturally-diverse staff help pupils gain accreditations in any other spoken dialect in order to boost confidence and raise self-esteem.
The support staff show how they play a vital role in helping students adjust to school life, including translating the class teacher's English instructions into Somali for students.
