English as an Additional Language

At Town Farm we strongly believe speaking more than one language is an asset. As a school with over thirty five languages spoken we are proud of our diversity. We celebrate the variety of languages spoken in our community and each month we focus on a different language.

Support for children with English as an Additional Language

Through teaching and learning we provide extra support to achieve fluency if required. Support is provided within the classroom through carefully planned activities and at times children who are new may work in smaller groups as well as receiving specific support by our EAL specialists in class and separately to enable pupils integrate fully into the school community and fully access the excellent learning within Town Farm.

We are very proud of our language learning curriculum at Town Farm. We have taught French in the classroom long before teaching languages became a compulsory subject. From September 2014, it has become a legal requirement that all primary schools teach a foreign language to key stage 2. We welcome this and will continue to provide fun, engaging and interactive sessions to ensure we instill an appreciation and love for another culture and language.
