This is a fantastic scheme where children support other children with little or no English. They help them to feel welcomed, safe, secure and valued as a new member of our school. They are trained to support the new arrival both within class and on the playground and may sometimes use their linguistic skills to interpret language. It is a rewarding role and the successful candidates are selected because of the caring qualities they possess with a desire to help others.
Following Covid-19 guidelines, new candidates will begin their training in Autumn 2021.
The Young Interpreters Scheme was developed by Hampshire County Council. You can read more about it on their website.
