English as an Additional Language (EAL)
At Banks Road, while the main language spoken at school is English, we have a diverse community of a wide range of languages spoken at home. We celebrate this diversity and ensure that all children, parents and carers are valued and included in our school community.
Mr Savage and Miss Barr work together to ensure that children, regardless of what language they speak as their primary language at home, make good or better progress at Banks Road.
Thank you to all the parents who attended our cake and coffee morning on Tuesday 7th November. This was a great opportunity to meet Mr Savage (SENCO) and Miss Barr (EAL coordinator) as well as Gill Rowlands from EMTAS.
We will be hosting another coffee morning early in the Spring term. Please keep looking on the website and school newsletter for news of future dates.
