Recommendation 10 – Pupils with English as an Additional Language (EAL)
The contents of this page are extracted from our Response to "Rochford Review: Final Report" that was first published in November 2016. The document can be downloaded in its entirety by clicking here.
EAL has always been kept separate to SEND. Schools should not use the P levels for assessing pupils with EAL working below the old level 1. However no guidance on how to assess these pupils was provided. The guidance suggest further work should be done regarding statutory assessment for EAL. It would make sense to use the pre-key stage standards for statutory assessment for pupils with EAL, but that the teaching and formative assessment would be very different.
How Does this Affect B Squared?
This doesn’t really affect B Squared as I believe assessing SEND pupils and EAL will be very different formatively as different approaches will be used.
