We have developed this Work Group following independent priority requests from Telford and Wolverhampton LAs to support further development of EAL and maths. It will support all children in classes with a high proportion of EAL pupils to develop deep knowledge, understanding and confidence to be well prepared for the secondary mathematics curriculum.
A participant from last year:
