  • Excellence Awards

    These Excellence Awards aim to give schools a self-evaluation framework to establish current practice within a range of different fields. Completed online, the results are electronically sent to the local authority in order to trigger a quality assurance visit from a specialist teacher adviser.

    Schools need to be registered to use these tools which are free to Hampshire local authority maintained schools.

  • EAL Excellence Award

    Award screen

    Over the last few months the EMTAS teacher team has been working hard on an online school self-evaluation framework (EAL Excellence Award) for monitoring the impact of provision for pupils learning English as an additional Language (EAL) as well as the wider aspects of black and minority ethnic achievement. This self-evaluation tool is now at pilot phase.

    The EAL Excellence Award covers five broad areas: Leadership & Management, Pedagogy and Practice, Data, Assessment & Progress, Teaching & Learning and Parental & Community Engagement. Schools completing the award will need to choose from a set of level descriptors as well as detailing where the evidence can be found to support their awarding level.

    Example statements

    It is the intention that, once completed, the submission should be printed and/or saved as a pdf and sent to your contact within the EMTAS team. After this an EMTAS teacher will be in contact in order to validate the school’s suggested award level (Bronze, Silver or Gold).
