Labinder Sekhon, an EAL teacher at Pikeman nursery in Glasgow wanted to engage more with the families of the children she was supporting. Some of the parents felt that they needed support with their English- for simple tasks like going to the doctor. They also asked about what their children were learning in nursery and how to help them. Labinder filmed these sessions with the parents and kindly gave us permission to share them here.
Here is Labinder, talking about why she decided to set up the group for EAL parents, the impact it’s made and some advice for teachers thinking of setting up a group for parents (you can hear the parents talking about their own experiences of the group here)
