Bell Foundation EAL Assessment Framework for Schools

A revised version of this EAL Assessment Framework is now available to download.  Click Here for further information and to download Version 1.1

The Bell Foundation have taken on board feedback and Version 1.1 is now designed to be more accessible for busy classroom teachers in both primary and secondary settings. The new leaner layout features a progress tracking tool which sits alongside the descriptors for each Band, so that teachers can easily navigate their way through the document, and track learner progress as they go. This version also includes detailed classroom support strategies, which provide concrete examples of how teachers can help pupils to meet (and exceed) age-related expectations.
