Additional Languages

Hampshire EMTAS works to improve the educational outcomes for children and young people from ethnic minority groups, including children from families for whom English is an additional language (EAL).

They provide:

  • information and advice
  • support at admission
  • telephone help lines in different languages – see our website for details
  • heritage language GCSEs
  • first language support
  • support at transition

They also provide EMTAS phone lines (Term time only)

This is a language phone line for parents/carers and can be used to support communication with an adult or child (where an adult is present with the child for the duration of the phone call).

Please ring them on their specialist help lines for information and support with home-school communication or if you have any questions relating to your child’s education or well-being.

All of their assistants speak good English so if you can use even a little English you can call at any of the times listed below.

If you need an interpreter for any other language, phone EMTAS on 03707 794222 or email with your contact details and the language you speak.
