EAL (English as an Additional Language)


At Mountfields Lodge Primary School we welcome, value and celebrate the cultural, linguistic and educational experiences that each of our pupils with English as an additional language brings to our school community.

We currently have around 15% of our pupils who speak English as an additional language with a wide range of languages spoken, such as Chinese, Turkish, Polish, Arabic, Bengali, Swedish etc.…

With a long history of welcoming children that are new to English, our aim is to help each pupil become confident in speaking, listening, reading and writing English language, for them to feel safe, happy and able to fully participate in their school life enabling them to reach their full academic potential.


Support at home can really boost a child’s progress and confidence with English - please find a few useful websites that you may find useful:


Should you require more information regarding provision for pupils with English as an additional language our EAL learning mentor is Sophie Rajraji, who would be delighted to help.
