Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service Online Support Offer

Updated: 24th August 2020


West Sussex EMTAS (Ethnic Minority & Traveller Achievement Service) have put together a series of videos aimed at parents and carers of children for whom English is an Additional Language (EAL). These videos aim to provide advice and suggest strategies for parents and carers who are supporting their EAL child’s learning at home.

The videos were originally created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, however we hope that they will continue to be useful for parents as they support their child’s learning in the future.

The videos have been recorded in different languages by members of the EMTAS team and by other bilingual professionals working in schools across West Sussex. We are hugely grateful for each person who has taken the time to record a video.

There are two versions of the video. One version is aimed at parents of primary school children and one for parents of secondary school children.
