The school has in place a programme to address the educational and emotional needs of ESOL children. The school employs an ESOL tutor who devises a programme of work to meet the individual needs of each child. The programme of work may be delivered individually or in small groups of children who have similar needs. and during the first few days the child/ren are taken for an orientation course. ESOL children are assessed within fourteen days of their enrolment and are placed in classes according to current class sizes, gender balance, other ESOL children, teacher affinity with children from other cultures; social/emotional needs of the child.
