Hi, I work at a Brit international school in Europe. We have children from over 50 different countries within our school but a couple of groups of nationalities are significant (the host country and Chinese). There has been an issue of some children in primary feeling excluded due to groups of students speaking their home language and not English in the playground and it was picked up by a visiting inspector last week. This is incredibly hard to prevent/police though...and I'm not even sure it should be. For those of you with large groups of children with EAL, what do you do in your school about this? I understand that some children feel excluded by this if they cannot access play due to the language barrier, but then I also see the other side whereby our young learners get to express themselves properly and let off steam using a language they are most comfortable in. I'm really open and interested to hear your thoughts and what other schools do that have this issue. Thank you!
