We welcome pupils from all over the world and understand that English may not be a child's first language.
The term EAL (English as an Additional Language) is used when referring to pupils whose main language at home is a language other than English. At Bilton Grange, we believe multilingualism is a real asset.
If your child's first language is not English, please do complete the form below to enable us to put in place the best possible support.
If your child's first language is English, you do not need to complete this form.
EAL pupils are assessed by the EAL Department upon arrival at Bilton Grange. Following the EAL assessment period some children will require significant support to develop their English alongside the support they receive in lessons. In such cases it will be recommended to their parents that they have individual or small group EAL lessons. These lessons are chargeable and take place during the school day in lieu of a non-core academic or non-academic subject. Whilst we will always inform parents of our plans and intentions, the school reserves the right to insist on EAL teaching where we decide that this is essential to assist with a pupil’s integration and learning.
Should you wish to provide any additional information or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact admissions or email the Head of EAL, Mrs Danielle Barnes. email@example.com directly.
