Bordesley Village Primary School

A place for every one.

EAL (English as an additional language)

If your child is new to English, has never been to school before or needs help in developing their skills in reading and writing, the English as an Additional Language department is here to help your child become a confident speaker and learner. 

The department has one specialist teacher and a teaching assistant working from two well resourced bases. Here children can feel safe and secure to use their emerging literacy skills, playing language games, making models, role play, making and using puppets reading books as well as more formal work. 
Most children make fast progress and soon become independent learners able to take an active role within the classroom.
