Welcome to St. Anne (Stanley) C of E Primary School’s information page for English as an additional language (E.A.L).

At St. Anne’s, we want all of our children to reach their true potential. Being bilingual is an advantage; it is important that children maintain their first language. Celebrating pupils’  culture and religion is important to us and enriches our whole school.

Our aim is to support children in developing their English language skills. By close monitoring of each child’s language skills, we then select a range of strategies to support them. We use fun resources such as:

  • Talking pens
  • Bilingual books
  • Role play using props from different cultures
  • Literacy games

If you have any queries or require further advice, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
