Improving support for pupils with English as an additional language

With over 1.5 million schoolchildren in England who speak English as an Additional Language (EAL) (School Census, 2021), there is a growing need to support bilingual and multilingual pupils with proficiency in English to help their academic achievement and social integration. Researchers have created a classroom-friendly approach, materials and assessments to help teachers identify the needs of EAL pupils on a day-to-day basis. The Bell Foundation’s EAL Assessment Framework for Schools is widely used in schools in the UK and internationally.
