Students with English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D)

Learners of English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) are children and young people whose main home language is a language or dialect other than Standard Australian English (SAE). 

In our schools they are simultaneously learning a new language and learning the knowledge, understandings and skills of the curriculum through this new language.  EALD learners have the same capacity to learn and understand the curriculum as other learners, however they require informed support with the English language and cultural understandings required to successfully access the curriculum and to demonstrate their achievement.  

Effective partnerships between schools, families and CEO personnel involve a shared responsibility for student learning and wellbeing within the whole school community.
