English as an Additional Language (EAL)


We are very proud of the multicultural nature of our school at St James.  Knowing two languages gives children many advantages.   Currently, we have 27 different languages spoken in school, with a range in proficiency from 'New to English' to fluent bi-linguilism.


Languages and cultures are celebrated throughout the school, with opportunities for children to find out about different countries, for example, during International Week in June 2022 and to learn vocabulary in the languages spoken at school.


We have a range of resources to support our learners of English in school, including Clicker 8 and Racing to English.  


Our website can be translated into many languages by clicking on the icon below in the top right hand corner of the homepage:
