EAL proficiency assessment

Our EAL proficiency assessment tool is matched to the EAL proficiency markers set out by the DFE in 2016. This is designed to help teachers identify EAL levels across the different key stages and key skills and set language learning targets for EAL pupils.

The assessment tool contains guidance on EAL teaching strategies, as well as sample resources and lesson plan ideas.
Devon has also created a home language assessment tool to help us unpack any underlying possible issues or additional barriers to learning.

All teachers and practitioners should use the EAL assessment to track progress and set language learning targets.
