Welcome to the Post Primary EAL page of our website. You will find a range of useful resources, pedagogical strategies and active learning methodologies on this page.

Students for whom English is an additional language may require support and scaffolding.


There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ EAL learner.


Each student will have a different background and life experience.


Each student will have different pastoral, social, linguistic, academic, and cognitive needs based on their background and life experience.
