Happy New Year!
Welcome back to a sunny new term of celebrating diversity and supporting our more vulnerable ethnic minority children achieve to their potential in our local schools!
NEW! please download our spring term newsletter to keep you up to date with EAL & GRT news.
We are planning on working closely with UASC ( Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children) this year and are keen to help schools get a Schools of Sanctuary Award. We are working on lots of new, exciting resources including a Survival English Pack for new arrivals, an Activity School set of lesson plans with teacher's notes, a CPD pack for teachers and training for foster carers- it's looking like a busy term!
We are holding three networks for EAL and schools supporting refugees this term- book your place on CPD online.
GCSE Home Language- UPDATES As you know all the students supported by EMTAS last year passed their exam with 86% of pupils gaining a level 9-7! We are planning to run this again and are close to our deadline - 31st January. for those interested in Home Language GCSE please contact: Sarah Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org)
