Our school values the diversity of cultures within the school. There are children representing over 30 nationalities at Hillcrest. Many of these children have English as their second language and are well supported. The contributions they make greatly enhance the learning that happens within our school community.
We enjoy helping new ESOL children and their families settle into their new environment. If you need someone to talk to, we will be in the ESOL office on Wednesday mornings from 8.30 a.m until 9.00 a.m.
There are 9 Learning Assistants in the school who are timetabled to support ESOL children.
