New To English

Class Teacher –


Miss Puszkarek (Polish speaker)

It is the aim of the school to support children who are new to the country and the English language by giving them experience of the language and their environment. This supports the development of their speaking and listening skills as well as skills in reading, writing and number before they can be assimilated back into their year classes.

Hopefully children will then be able to use the language skills and new gained confidence to support their future learning.

The classes operate each morning and after lunch children join their own year group classes. This high level of quality support is at present only in place in a few Primary schools in the Bradford District.

This function has been disabled for St Joseph's Catholic Primary School.
