Currently at Mayfield we can speak 38 different languages with a high proportion of children speaking more than one language. We celebrate our diversity in various ways e.g. displaying the languages around the school, sending Monty Mayfield to visit different countries, holding an International food evening in the Autumn Term.
Some children each year start school with very little or no English. We support children as fully as possible within the classroom through the excellent work of class teachers and quality first teaching and through our EAL teaching assistants, Cheryl Ashby and Christine Luetchford. Socially the children settle quickly into the school, making friends and accessing a wide range of extra curricular activities.
