At St Anne’s Catholic Primary School we celebrate the fact that most of our children and families speak more than one language and we identify bilingualism as a strength and as a valuable contribution to our community. We also highlight the importance of home language and we encourage parents to support and develop the acquisition of their mother tongue at home.
We are proud to be a School Of Sanctuary and therefore we welcome everybody into our school, regardless their background. We acknowledge the importance of safety and well-being of our children in order to provide the best learning environment.
We encourage our EAL children to achieve the highest possible standards by taking account of each child’s individual life experiences and needs.
We take a whole school approach, including ethos, curriculum, education against racism and promoting language awareness.
In St Anne’s we collaboratively work with EMTAS to support the induction of newly arrived children.
