English as an additional Language

A learner of English as an Additional Language (EAL) refers to a pupil whose first language is not English. First language is the language to which the child was initially exposed during early development. They often continue to use this language in their home and community, although they may also be fluent in English too.

Children of Broke Hall Primary School

Here at Broke Hall we are a very inclusive school, embracing a range of backgrounds, cultures and languages. Lots of the children at Broke Hall speak many different languages and might not speak English as their first language at home. Did you know we have 26 other languages spoken across our school? 

Useful Resources 

There are some free useful resources and great websites which might help you practice your English at home. These websites include videos, games, stories and activities for you to complete. We would recommend you start with Duolingo. (Children can also use these websites to support their learning of French, as this is our modern foreign language taught throughout key stage 2).
