English as an Additional Language (EAL)

For students who are at the early stages of learning English at PNE, we provide anĀ EAL Support program. A qualified EAL teacher works with small groups of students and provides specialist instruction and guided practice of speaking and listening, reading and viewing, and writing. Most students attend 3 periods of EAL each week, where they work to improve their English language.


Students’ English language learning is also supported through the classroom program where vocabulary, grammar and spelling are taught explicitly.

While students are still learning English, they are assessed against the EAL curriculum standards rather than the English curriculum.
