English as an Additional Language

At The Meadows, our languages are English, Polish, Bulgarian, Lithuanian, Arabic, Chinese and Kurdish. We warmly welcome all families and children for whom English is an additional language (EAL).

Working together in families helps us to make progress and to be part of the school community. We enjoy a coffee morning and learning session each term, where we share our languages, customs and cultures. Miss Gray and Mrs Kosmala lead our group and anyone is welcome to join us!

Recently, we have shared rhymes and stories, created crafts, shared books, written postcards and shared traditional foods. We look forward to many more opportunities to work together.
