Free NAHT Webinar – EAL: Welcoming new arrivals in your primary school


Free NAHT Webinar – EAL: Welcoming new arrivals in your primary school

Starting a new school can be tough for any child; they may feel scared or nervous about adjusting to their new environment and making friends. For children whose first language isn’t English, this can feel even scarier – especially if they have low or zero proficiency. So, how can we best support our new arrivals? What resources can we harness and how can we implement whole-school approaches?

Join Claire Evans, Deputy Head at Anderton Park Primary, on Thursday 17th June to learn about ‘best-practice’ strategies and ways to better promote EAL across the education map.


By the end of the session, you will have an improved understanding of best-practice strategies to welcome new arrivals into primary school, including how to support new pupils’ academic and pastoral development in the classroom and wider school.


  • Learn how to prepare and plan for new arrivals.
  • Learn strategies for welcoming and inducting new arrivals in the classroom.
  • Learn strategies and key takeaways for supporting pupils across the curriculum subjects.
