Secondary TAs - EAL

Description

This programme looks at how TAs at George Dixon International School and Sixth Form Centre help to meet the needs of their EAL pupils.

George Dixon is an inner-city school three miles from the centre of Birmingham. Of the 1200 pupils on role, 560 are currently on the EAL register, covering 30 different languages. This programme shows the strategies that have been put in place to enable the EAL pupils to access the curriculum and to help them integrate into school life.

Key points:

  • Headteacher Sir Robert Dowling's view on EAL policy and how TAs can be used to play an integral part in realising the school's EAL vision
  • Student support services manager, Muriel Cunningham takes us through the specific strategies used at George Dixon School, including the provision of dictionaries, visual learning aids and the buddy system
  • The programme will appeal to any practitioners involved in working with EAL pupils
