News: Guidance on ‘Integrating students using EAL into mainstream lessons’ has been published by The Bell Foundation

Published by The Bell Foundation today: a guidance document which provides an overview of integration and examines why it is so beneficial for learners using EAL.

Following an extended period away from the classroom, many pupils who use English as an Additional Language (EAL) are returning to school having had limited access to good models of English language.  Learners in the earliest stages of language acquisition will be at the greatest disadvantage. Successfully integrating students into high-quality mainstream lessons provides valuable opportunities for linguistic, academic and social development.

Today, The Bell Foundation has published a guidance document which provides an overview of integration and examines why it is so beneficial for learners using EAL.

To find out more, and to download the guidance for free, please visit the ‘Integrating students using EAL into mainstream lessons’ page.

For more information on supporting EAL learners after the extended period of school closures please see the following articles: ‘Closing the linguistic learning gap’ on this website, and ‘Overcoming the new challenges facing EAL learners and their teachers’ which is an opinion piece on the Schools Week website.
