English as an Additional Language – EAL

Copperfield is committed to ensuring that all children with English as an Additional Language enter securely and happily into our school. Our core values ensure that all children from all backgrounds are valued and supported in reaching their potential.

We understand and welcome the cultural diversity that the children bring to our school community. Currently, there are 36 different languages spoken by children from our school and 13 by members of staff.

Our experienced EAL team is committed to supporting children and their families who are less confident in communicating in English. We aim to secure access to all curriculum subjects for the children by helping them increase in confidence to make progress alongside their peers.
