EAL Guidance

The Bell Foundation provides guidance to school staff about supporting provision for learners who use English as an Additional Language (EAL). Our guidance focuses on different aspects of supporting EAL learners, such as school provision, classroom strategies, assessment, welcoming refugee learners and new arrivals, as well as working with parents.

Some of the documents were formerly available on the EAL Nexus website by the British Council.

  • Teachers;
  • Members of senior leadership teams;

Some of them have also been designed for parents of EAL learners.
