Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community

EAL (English as an Additional Language)

We are very fortunate at Rucstall  Primary to have a wealth of different languages spoken in our school.

At the moment, we speak nine different languages!


  • Bulgarian
  • Polish
  • Romanian
  • Tamil
  • Turkish
  • Urdu
  • Nepali
  • Portuguese
  • Italian


Young Interpreters

These children have been chosen to support children when they first start at Rucstall to make their transition into school a smooth one, to be a friendly face and help interpret in the first few weeks of a new school.






Language of the Term

Each term, we shall be focusing on a different language spoken at Rucstall.

We believe that bi/multilingualism of our children and staff enriches our school and community.

We feel it is important that our children with EAL have opportunities to share and use their home languages at school.

The children help to create the Language of the Term displays found in our community room which is open for all to see.

We hope that by having an understanding of other languages will provoke interest and respect.
