Assessing special educational needs in bilingual pupils

When assessing whether a bilingual learner has any special educational needs please always consider factors that may have an impact on the child's rate of progress, including:

  • English language development
  • learning task demands
  • past or present social or emotional stress
  • physical or sensory factors.

For information and support with the assessment of bilingual learners who may have other learning needs please contact our race equality and minority achievement (REMA) team
