Services for schools: Southampton Language Services (Ethnic Minority)

Southampton Language Service provides bilingual assistants who can support access to the curriculum at school using the child or young person’s first/home language. Bilingual assistants work in a number of languages including - Arabic, Dari, Farsi, Hindi, Punjabi, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Urdu.

We work in partnership with schools to meet the needs of bilingual learners and ethnic minority pupils at the risk of underachieving. We primarily support pupils whose home and community language is other than English. These pupils may be recent arrivals, from extended stays abroad or they may have been born in UK.
