EMAS - Ethnic Minority Achievement Service

We support pupils who have English as an additional language in schools across Brighton & Hove. EMAS is a team of specialist teachers, teaching assistants, bilingual liaison workers and home school liaison workers. 

We work with pre-school, primary and secondary aged children, in their own schools.

Getting support from EMAS

Every private, voluntary and independent pre school and nursery can refer to EMAS. Bilingual support is available for 2, 3 and 4 year old children who have a funded place.

Usually schools refer pupils to EMAS. Sometimes EMAS home school liaison or bilingual liaison workers will refer a child. Other professionals like health visitors and speech and language therapists also refer children to EMAS.

Parents and carers are welcome to contact us if they have any questions.
