This session will support practitioners to consider the implications for children and families coming into their setting with no or very little English. We will explore cultural identity, self-esteem, language acquisition and learn practical strategies to ensure both children and families have a voice, all of which has impact on their achievement.
We will develop a better understanding of communities, cultures and communication and consider how valuing the home language has impact on children’s confidence and self-esteem. We will explore the Bell Foundation EAL assessment framework and how this can support multi-lingual learners understanding, communication and a sense of belonging.
