Supporting pupils and parents

The Achievement Cohesion and Integration Service (ACIS) supports families who are new to the UK and speak English as an additional language (EAL), including families from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) communities to apply for school places in Bolton.

Families can attend the Starting Point International Family Centre whilst they wait for a school place.  The Starting Point International Family Centre is based at ACIS just outside Bolton Town Centre on Shepherd Cross Street.

In partnership with schools and their staff, ACIS:

  • help EAL pupils and GRT pupils with their move into school
  • help EAL pupils and GRT pupils to develop their English language and literacy skills
  • help EAL pupils and GRT pupils to access all areas of the curriculum
  • help EAL pupils and GRT pupils to achieve their full potential
  • help to raise the attainment of under-achieving ethnic minority pupils
  • involve parents in their children's learning
  • Provide training for schools

In addition to the above ACIS also provides support and guidance on Community Cohesion for schools, racial equality and Elective Home Education.
