Mrs J Griffiths – English as an Additional Language Teaching Assistant

At Stockingford we are very proud of the multicultural diversity of our school community. We actively promote children to learn “home” languages and enjoy the gift of becoming bilingual speakers. With this in mind we are aware that children who are exposed to multiple languages may find the demands of the English curriculum challenging.

If parents are not in agreement with SEND provision for their child they should contact the SENDCO and/or the Head Teacher at the school to discuss the support and provision in place.
