Multi Ethnic Achievement Department
Curriculum Intent for Multi Ethnic Achievement Department
The EAL department’s focus is on preparing students to participate fully in 21st century society. We take a child-centred approach, which adapts to the individual needs of the students we support. Alongside improved academic achievement, through targeted work on literacy and oracy, we look to enhance the way a learner can become integrated in their community by fostering self-confidence, resilience and respect for others. We also seek to “bring the outside in” by acknowledging the importance of experiences outside the classroom and the “funds of knowledge” present in local communities.
