Phyllis Bridge - EAL Subject Leader
As Subject Leader of EAL for more than a decade, I have successfully led the EAL team in various schools to raise the achievement of EAL students. More recently, as literacy co-ordinator, I have planned, delivered and supported staff on literacy development through Continuing Professional Development, production of resources and one to one support. Outside school I led on projects with the London Challenge and EEF to promote the education of bilingual and multilingual learners with high impact. My pioneer EAL work in Feltham Community College is showcased on Ofsted Good Practice website.
My primary role is to lead on language and development across the whole school, especially in the area of teaching and learning where high impact strategies are introduced to improve student outcomes. Secondly, I provide and deliver a bespoke curriculum for the learners of English as an additional language and ensure their progress is in line with their abilities. In addition, I use data to plan and deliver literacy intervention programmes to those who are in need of a boost to make further progress in literacy. Last but not least, I draw up and deliver training programmes for staff at departmental and whole school levels so as to empower them with the latest effective literacy strategies.
