NFER carried out an evaluation of a pilot/programme that was introduced in 2004 to help raise the achievement of bilingual learners in primary schools. Within participating authorities, pilot consultants were appointed and were managed by the Primary National Strategy managers and the Ethnic Minority Achievement managers, to help embed the pilot/programme within the Primary National Strategy. In the qualitative phase of the research local authority personnel and practitioners were consulted in 21 schools within seven local authorities.
