English Not the First Language in 240 Schools

The Department of Education census figures for the last academic year show that there are 240 schools in England where over 90% of students do not speak English as a first language, and five primary schools in England had no native speakers at all.
 

Staff at one of these primary schools, which has recently won a regional award for its inclusive policy and standards of education, believe they have a winning formula for teaching children from a diverse community, with English as the second language for 95% of the school's 128 pupils - the vast majority of them with parents from Pakistan or Bangladesh.
 

The school has children who speak Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi, French, Polish and Tamil as well as English.
 

If you need any help and advice with Free School or Academy Schools, contact Lavinia Newman or Peter Ham now to discuss how ABDS can help bring their experience to these matters.
