EAL: Advanced Learners of English

It takes 2-3 years to develop conversational English and  between 5-10 years for these pupils to operate on a par with their English speaking peers.

Once New to English arrivals have progressed beyond Step Level 5 they are considered Advanced Learners of English but still require some level of support and differentiation.

Pupils born in the UK who have a home language other than English also fall into this group alongside pupils from 2nd and 3rd generation families who have a heritage other than English.

At Lawnswood we continue to raise awareness of ALE learners and their needs across the different departments and work collaboratively to meet the needs of these students. Through tracking, support and where necessary providing writing and reading intervention programmes we aim to increase the attainment of these pupils.

Best ever Key Stage 5 Results!

43% of all A-level/BTEC results at A/A* or Distinction/Distinction*.

99% Pass rate.

28% of A level students achieved A levels at grades AAB or higher in at least 2 ‘facilitating subjects’.
