  • Map the EAL needs within the PYP

  • Provide support to all EAL in mainstream classrooms
  • Monitor and document the progress of all EAL students
  • Collaborate with parents on how to support EAL learning
  • Plan with colleagues across the school
  • Participate in school activities (assemblies, evening events, conferences, etc.)
