Managing the admission of EAL children and establishing effective EAL provision is key priority in our trust. Soofia Amin has been an ESOL lecturer since 2000 and has worked in Adult education for the past 13 years in Newham. She is currently an Assistant Head Teacher at Kensington Primary, an SLE for the borough and works very closely with the EAL academy. She joined the school in 2014 and leads on EAL, Mid-phase Admission and Community Engagement along with developing practice of leaders and teachers across the borough. Her role includes managing the mid-phase process, ensuring provision for EAL pupils is effective and that all EAL pupils are making good to outstanding progress. She also ensures parents have the support needed at school to help their children with their education. This is provided through maths, literacy and parenting courses.
TTLT offer a range of services to help support you to deliver excellent EAL provision. There are a number of training sessions and school support that can be offered as well as gaining access to other EAL coordinators.
