The impetus to produce The Guide to Inclusive Practice for Welcoming and Supporting EAL Learners arose from a desire within schools to welcome and support all EAL learners, including those born in the UK, living in homes where the first language is not English, and the children of economic migrants, as well as refugee and asylum seeking children and young people.

A group of colleagues, committed to improving the experience of young people in our schools, came together to share their expertise and produce the guide. We believe it will be useful to you whether you are an experienced practitioner or new to working with EAL learners.

The guide will be updated so do check from time to time to make sure you are looking at the latest version.
