Each child in your school who will receive language support will need their own EAL IEP. In large schools, that have a very high percentage of children with EAL, this can mean you may need a separate plan for several hundred children.
Doing plans for all of these children is extremely time consuming. Trust me, I have done it! This plan has been designed to allow you to create EAL Individual Education Plans for all of the children in your school who receive language support quickly and easily.
It is very common that child may be on different levels (A1 Breakthrough, A2 Waystage, or B1 Threshold) in each of the skill areas: Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing. For example, they may be on level B1 in Listening, A1 in Reading, A2 in Speaking, and A1 in Writing. For this reason, a generic plan that has all 4 skills at A1 level may not be useful. This plan allows you to only keep the long-term aims and targets for the level the child is working at, as indicated by their PSAK result e.g. if they are at level B1 in Listening, then you delete the long term aims and targets for levels A1 and A2 in Listening. If they are at level A1 in Reading, then delete the long term aims and targets for levels A2 and B1 in Reading etc.
Furthermore, usually children with EAL only begin working on reading and writing skills from First Class onwards. Therefore, you may have some older children who need these skills included in their EAL long-term plan, and younger children who do not. For children in the infant classes, you can delete the reading and writing aims and targets and only keep the listening and speaking ones.
Finally, as children progress through their EAL instruction, they may reach the target level of B1.3 in some areas e.g. listening and speaking, but not in reading and writing. In this case, you will be creating a plan with only aims and targets relating to the areas where they have not reached the B1.3 level.
All of these scenarios, mean that you will need to create EAL plans that are slightly different for each child. I have created this template plan as the fastest way to be able to do this, as all of the content that you need is already included. So rather than having to copy and paste information into a new document which is very time consuming, you simply click and delete the sections in this plan that are not needed for that particular child.
Using this plan, I have been able to create an EAL IEP with aims, targets and vocab to match a child’s individual PSAK results in under 1 minute! Filling out the individual pupil profile section, is the most time-consuming part of this plan, but even this can be done in less than 10 minutes if you have the information already to hand. So, using this template, will allow you to create EAL IEPS with aims, targets and vocabulary specific to each child’s profile of needs in under 10mintes per child!
To help you identify the different levels quickly, there is a traffic light colour coding in this plan. Aims, targets, vocab etc. relating to A1 level are in red, A2 level in yellow, and B1 level in green.
To delete a row quickly, move your cursor to the left margin next to the row you wish to delete and click. This will hi-light the row. To delete the row, click the backspace key. In this way you will be able to delete the sections you don’t need quickly.
Once you have deleted all of the sections that you do not need for the child you can save it as a unique plan for them and create another plan for a different child using the original template.
A huge amount of time and effort was put into this plan and I am confident you will be happy with your purchase. Follow me on social media to keep up to date about other products, special offers and giveaways! I am on Facebook and Instagram.
