Leighton Primary School

EAL Gold Award

EAL Gold Quality Mark Award

Last year, we achieved the Bronze Quality Mark award in recognition of our achievements in supporting children who have English as an additional language.

This year, we have worked hard to improve our provision in this area even further and are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Gold Standard Quality Mark Award. This is the highest level of award and we are really proud of this. The award celebrates the fantastic teaching which takes place every day at Leighton enabling our children from all different cultures and language backgrounds to achieve their full potential.

In order to achieve this award, Miss Guilfoyle met with an advisor from The EAL Academy who took a tour of the school, spoke to some of our pupils and assessed what we do as a school for children who speak English as an additional language.

If you speak a language other than English and could spare a little time in your week to be a regular reading buddy or run a one off cooking class or story time please email Miss Guilfoyle for more information: nguilfoyle@leightonprimary.net

We really value working closely with our parents to enhance the curriculum and would like to congratulate our parents and pupils for helping us to achieve this award.
