Support for newly arrived students

At Lyng Hall we work together to ensure TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and EAL (English as an Additional Language) students are able to make excellent progress to achieve and exceed expectations.  We provide a coherent, cross curricular and whole school system of support that identifies strengths and weaknesses in order to tailor teaching and learning to suit individual needs. Students make rapid progress through the inspirational and highly bespoke teaching and learning programme that they follow.

Our aim in the TEFL class is to provide students access the teaching and learning in all subject areas, in line with the national curriculum, whilst developing and improving their English Language communication skills. 

On admission to Lyng Hall we assess the English language skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking of our new students.  Dependent on the level of English language communication skills, students either follow a mainstream timetable or are given specialised English language teaching in the TEFL class.

Through subject and topic focused lessons, students build vocabulary knowledge, strengthen language learning strategies, improve and develop linguist and communication skills in English in order to join mainstream classes when ready.
