Support learning English

A range of support is available to pupils in Knowsley's mainstream schools who have English as an additional language.

What support is available

You can get materials from school to practise with your child at home or information on a range of courses, including where you may attend an Adult English for Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) course.

A range of resources are available for you to borrow free of charge, including some dual-text books, jigsaws, games, taped storybooks, bi-lingual and mono-lingual dictionaries. 

How you can help

It is important that you help your child's cognitive development through the home language, whilst exposing them to English as often as possible.
