The aim of the Language Support Programme is to integrate the pupil as quickly as possible into all mainstream learning and activities of the school.


Our main objectives are:

  • To create an individual profile for each pupil on enrolment to the school

  • To assess their level of English language including listening, speaking, reading and writing

  • Liaise with the class teacher and identify appropriate groupings for language support

  • To foster positive integration between all in a holistic manner

  • To create a secure, relaxed and inclusive learning environment

Our programme is based on the English language proficiency benchmarks for non-English
speaking pupils at primary level.

These benchmarks include:

-  Listening  -   Reading  -  Speaking  -  Understanding  -   Writing
