Webinar Duration: 1 hour 3 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, school leaders, teachers and teaching assistants with strategies, best practice and resources to support English as an Additional Language (EAL) pupils with language development, social integration and academic achievement after a period of remote education.
The impact of remote education on EAL pupils is particularly pronounced, as opportunities for language acquisition are reduced, which can lead to a delay in language development and even loss of skills. This in turn can impact pupils’ ability to readjust to in-school provision and further widen education gaps.
In this webinar, Dr Kirstin Lewis, Head of BA (Hons) Education, Culture & Society at Goldsmiths, University of London and former teacher, senior manager and literacy consultant, explores the particular issues affecting EAL pupils and explains how schools can put measures in place which can help EAL pupils returning to school to thrive academically and socially.
