To add EAL status to a student's profile, you will need to go to the Language abilities section. The quickest way to find this section is by clicking the View drop-down menu, towards the top of a student's profile.
Click +Add and select Language Ability in the pop-up.
You can then select a language from the drop-down menu.
You can then choose whether this is the student's native language, by checking the Native Language box and then clicking Add Language Ability.
- If the child's native language is not English then you will get the EAL tag on the student record.
- If the student has multiple native languages, one of which is English, the EAL tag will still display.
