English as an additional language

A learner of English as an additional language (EAL) is a pupil whose first language is other than English. First language is the language to which the child was initially exposed to during early development and continues to use this language in the home and community. This measure is the percentage of pupils (primary and secondary) for whom English is an additional language.
