English as an Additional Language Service (EALS)

We are a team of specialist EAL teachers and Bilingual Support Officers (BSOs).

We work with pupils who have English as an additional language to help them access the curriculum and fully integrate into school life.

We work with pupils from the Foundation Stage, KS1 to KS4 and post-16.

What EALS offer

Direct Bilingual Support Officer support for pupils in many languages spoken by pupils in East Sussex, including Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish and Ukrainian.
