EMTAS and referral form

Salford Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service (EMTAS) provides support to all local authority schools. They help them meet the additional needs of their ethnic minority pupils.

These may be children who have English as an additional language (EAL), may be of Gypsy, Roma Traveller (GRT) heritage or have asylum or refugee status.

We offer a variety of services to schools, including:

  • One to one or group support
  • Training and advice on best practice in ethnic minority achievement including new arrivals, advanced learners, GRT and asylum or refugee pupils 
  • Assessment and tracking
  • Support on whole school policies and provision mapping
  • Resources
  • Interpreters for new arrival admission meetings
  • Liaison with parents and other agencies

If you would like to refer a pupil to our service (we only accept referrals from Salford schools), please complete the online referral form. The parental consent box on the form must be ticked in order to submit the referral. Getting parental consent is the responsibility of the school and is essential in line with GDPR.
