Children with English as an Additional Language

The number of children with English as an Additional Language (EAL) in UK schools has more than doubled in the last ten years, and is continuing to increase. Children with EAL follow the national curriculum and develop their English as an additional language at the same time, but there is no national agreement on how teachers can best support them to do this, and the training teachers receive on EAL can be patchy and inconsistent.
