The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), Unbound Philanthropy and The Bell Foundation have commissioned two reports by Professor Steve Strand and Professor Victoria Murphy of the University of Oxford to analyse the evidence on the achievement of pupils with English as an Additional Language (EAL) and to review the literature on effective interventions to raise the attainment of pupils with EAL.
The reports attracted media attention and were featured in The Independent, TES and Schools Week
