REMA’s EAL training course for recently qualified primary teachers is taking place again this academic year. You will find it relevant for your NQTs, as well as returning teachers and those in their second year of teaching. Last year’s delegates found that the training significantly boosted their confidence in catering for the needs of their EAL pupils.
The training course is delivered by REMA Specialist Teachers over two dates in the autumn and spring terms, with distance mentoring available in the intervening period.
It has a practical focus, and is aimed at developing the ability of new teachers to deal with the challenges that teaching EAL pupils may present.
The attached flyer will give you some further information. Please contact me if you would like more details or would like to book places.

STIP Service UPdate
Welcome back, I hope you had a lovely summer holiday and a good start to the term.
We are looking forward to working with you again this year.
As shared at the summer term SENCO meetings, we have been working to ensure that the STIP service offer aligns with the Profile of Need and Graduated Response. The focus remains on early intervention and we have significantly reduced the paperwork involved in accessing our support.
Please find the following attached forms and information:
1. Review and Planning Meeting
2. Parent Permission
3. Pupil Support Journey
4. On-site Training Request
Planning meetings are key in helping us to prioritise and allocate our support. The form, which we will complete with you at the meetings, is attached for your information. There is no need for you to fill in this form but you might find it helpful to gather some of the information prior to the meeting.
The attached ‘Pupil Journey Flowchart’ provides a summary of the support we offer for individual pupils. This support always begins with a conversation with your attached STIP; if further support is agreed your next step is to scan and send electronically the completed ‘Parent Permission form’ to the area office. All previous referral forms are now redundant so please do not use them.
We would like to wish you a happy and inclusive academic year.
