EMA used to be called English as a Second or Additional Language (ESL or EAL).
EMA is the responsibility of our Inclusion Manager, who gives extra help to children whose first language is not English, supports teachers and works with small groups outside the classroom.
Everyone at Baden Powell respects and values cultural diversity and acknowledges the importance of home languages. All our teachers have high expectations of bilingual children and can recognise their potential regardless of language differences.
With the support of our staff and, most importantly, their fellow pupils, children in our school quickly become confident in English.
