English Language Support

English Language Support

It is vital that students are proficient in English if they are to succeed at GIS. Therefore, it is a requirement that if a student is identified as needing English Language Support (ELS), they receive this support until they complete the programme.

In Primary there are 3 levels of ELS support. Level 1 is for students new, or relatively new, to English, Level 2 is for students able to have some access to Literacy and Level 3 is for students in either Year 1 or 2 or those in Year 3 and above who are able to access Literacy, but still need support with writing, reading or confidence.

Detailed information on ELS can be found in the English Language Support (ELS) Provision 2016-2017 document, which can be found in the Guidebook for Admissions . English Learning Support in Primary at GIS is at an additional cost to parents.
