EAL Highland Manual for schools

EAL Manual for Highland Schools

PLEASE NOTE THIS MANUAL WAS DEVELOPED ON A PRE COVID-19 WORLD AND SO THINGS MAY NEED TO BE ADAPTED TO SUIT NEW CIRCUMSTANCES

This manual tries to collect everything you need to keep track of the language acquisition of EAL pupils. This tends to be achieved through EAL Profiles and the associated strategies which help to flag up how a child is acquiring English and if there is a need for investigation or enquiry into other additional difficulties. Also included in the manual is guidance on ensuring SEEMiS is up to date, support for the enrolment of pupils into school, how to access interpreting and translation services, and resources for new to English pupils. It is split into 3 sections that are appropriate for the different stages of an EAL pupil’s school life. The links are all provided on Google Drive with the shared access link you have been provided with. 

Just click on the links to get to the support materials. 

There are lots of additional materials to be found at www.ealhighland.org including dual language resources, best practice, subject support etc
