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
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).
