Services

The English as an Additional Language (EAL) Service provides services to schools for bilingual children whose first language is other than English and caters for a United Nations in terms of nationalities, with an age range of pupils from 5 to 18 years.

Support for children for whom English is an additional language has been established in Aberdeen City since 1972 and all schools are advised of the work of the EAL Service.

The staff work from a small base within Sunnybank Primary school. The teachers work in partnership and on the basis of shared responsibility with the bilingual pupil's own school and teachers, and some beginners may be taught at the EAL Service's base. Most EAL support is delivered peripatetically.

As well as direct EAL teaching, the service offers consultation and advice on management and teaching approaches, and can also lend a small amount of suitable materials according to the stage and age of the child and the resources of the school.
