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 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
  • Cultural and religious awareness training

If you would like to refer a pupil to our service (we only accept referrals from Salford schools), please complete the online referral form or the electronic referral form. For all referral forms we need a parental signature, ideally these should be submitted within the referral form but if you are unable to do this at the point of referral please forward the parent consent form as soon as possible. Please note due to GDPR, we are not able to work with a child without parental consent.
