Please find attached the extracts from the assessment and reporting arrangements (ARA) for Key Stage 2 SATs which refer to pupils with EAL.


If you have pupils who will need bilingual support for the Maths papers please let EMAS know earlier in the summer term.  This will enable us to plan ahead for the week.   Some bilingual learning assistants might be needed in more than one school and we would have to arrange for pupils to be moved.


Just to remind you in order to qualify for bilingual support for the SATs this support needs to have been usual classroom practice, either currently or at some time during Year 6.

Following several recent requests for information, we have collated some information on GCSE access arrangements for pupils with EAL and the current opportunities for qualifications in community languages.  Hope you find them useful.


If you have further queries, please don't hesitate to contact EMAS.
