Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) CLASSES FOR PARENTS
“Would you like to develop your use of the English language?”
The ESOL course is a free of charge for parents/carers of children who
attend Wood End Park Academy. The Academy aims to help and
support the parents/carers of those children whose first
language is not English.
Parents are children’s first educators, when parents and teachers work
together, there is a more positive impact on your child’s learning and
Parents who do not speak English at home (parents who did not
learn English as a child and currently speak a non-English language
in the home) may feel less confident than parents who do to
attend a school meeting or school event, or to volunteer or
serve on a committee.
In the beginners basic ESOL course, we will help you to learn basic
English language skills, to read and write your own personal
details, also to become more confident in communicating with others,
and help your own children with their learning too.
believe that good communication is key to success. It can be a
very daunting experience to be in a new country and not understand the
language spoken or be able to communicate with people day to day.
I feel the ESOL classes offered to parents/carers of children who
attend WEPA is a positive step towards empowering them to gain
independence and to bring the school community together. The
class setting and agenda is an informal one to help parents/carers to
build confidence and communicate well in a relaxed environment.
These classes also go towards the parent/carer being able to assist in
their child's education and their future development." - Ms Dutt
