The Piggott School’s EAL Provision

1:1 and small group support

       Following language assessment and liaison with subject teachers and head of years, targeted EAL            students are given the opportunity of 1:1 sessions with the EAL coordinator. The essential aspects          of these sessions are work on grammar, conversational skills, writing skills and subject related                  work, particularly English.

Flash Academy

Flash Academy is an excellent tool to support students’ independent English learning where they can work on their reading, writing, listening and speaking in a fun and engaging manner.

The students can access the website on the tab below using their login details.   

We also use it as an assessment tool for our EAL students.

Weekly Mentoring with Sixth form students

      Once a week, some of the EAL students have the opportunity to meet their mentors from the sixth          form and engage in discussions about different topics.

      These largely 1:1 session are aimed at building the students’ confidence and improving their                    conversational skills. The sixth formers are students of the Piggott School who have completed the         TEFL training course at the end of the summer term of Year 12 and serve as brilliant role models for       the EAL students.                                                                                                                                       

      This is also a great opportunity for EAL students to learn more about life in the sixth form and                   beyond.
