English as an additional language (EAL)

Scoil Aireagail remains committed to providing appropriate support to students where English is not their first language.

The following interventions are used to support such students:

• Appropriate and effective use of EAL-specific hours
• Use of translating software in the classroom
• Translating of assessments to first language
• Integration in as far as possible and practical with other learning groups
• Allowances, where appropriate, to use device to translate text
