The term ‘vulnerable groups’ is often confusing as we also talk about ‘disadvantaged groups’, but who are they, and how are they defined?
In Ofsted terms, vulnerable children are amongst those groups that may need additional support or intervention in order to make the progress expected of them.
“whose needs, dispositions, aptitudes or circumstances require particularly perceptive and expert teaching and, in some cases, additional support“.
Which groups these are will depend on the circumstances of the particular school or/and area, but a number are mentioned within the schedule, such as boys, girls, looked after children and minority ethnic groups.
Supporting minority ethnic groups is most difficult due to the languages spoken by many of them. With around 7,000 languages spoken in the world, having the right language or dialect for everyone is virtually impossible. At EMAS UK we created a virtual translator that speaks in 25 languages but translates over 60 languages. This means that you can treat your non English speaking children the same as their peers.
Simple solutions at cost effective prices is exactly what we are about. From £500 you can have access to the latest virtual translator that will speak your words in their language anytime and anywhere it is needed. No additional costs, no extra charges, a simple annual fixed cost that can save you time, effort and money.
