In this episode, Ulster University's Dr Barbara Skinner and PhD Researchers Maria Stewart and Ronan Kelly, discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted primary and post-primary pupils with English as an Additional Language (EAL) as well as their families.

The discussion centres on the particular challenges pupils have faced during the home-schooling period and will face as they return to the classroom, with a specific focus on language development, access to support and home-school communication.
