Supporting new arrivals and new to schooling students in mainstream lessons in secondary schools

Date(s) - 06/03/2019
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm



We will look at some of the challenges that this can present to mainstream teachers in secondary schools to meet these students’ needs, strategies that we have put in place in our school and examples of resources that teachers have developed to differentiate for and support these students. The session will give practical ideas that can be used in different situations.
