English as an additional language (EAL)
Children from minority ethnic communities may have English as an additional language to their own. The school will find out what support each pupil needs to help them develop their English language skills so they can fully engage in their studies.
Some schools have specialist staff who can help pupils, and some schools might buy this support from the Minority Ethnic Achievement Team.
Learning support for pupils for whom English is an additional language is funded by the DfES through the Ethnic Minority Achievement Grant. The grant is administered by this local authority.

From 1999 until 2011, local authorities had additional funding for EAL learners through the Ethnic Minority Achievement (EMA) Grant. This grant was often used to finance a central local authority (LA) team with a particular responsibility for EAL and ethnic minority issues. However the bulk of the grant (85%) was required to be devolved to schools’ budgets to meet the needs within their schools. In April 2011, the EMA Grant was merged into the Direct Schools Grant and schools were given greater discretion over its use.
LA teams may be able to offer advice and guidance or provide specialist support for initial teacher education programmes. For example, they are often involved in working with newly qualified teachers recruited to schools in their local authorities. The local authority team may also run professional development programmes, manage specific projects and produce guidance documents and materials. Links to service information and contacts for more than 50 LA language services are listed below. However the situation is in flux as many LA teams have reduced in size or role.
In many areas with relatively few EAL and bilingual learners and few pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds, LA teams of EAL specialists often provide peripatetic support for schools and particularly for learners who are new to English

The role of Parents
At school all children are assessed regularly by teachers to make sure they are making good progress in all areas of learning. School staff inform parents if a child is not making the expected progress and some additional support may be provided to help improve progress.
If your child is learning English as an additional language (EAL) you should continue to support and develop the child’s first (home) language. A strong home language will support the child to learn English. You can support your child’s education by talking about their books and school work in your first language.
