Meet our Young Interpreters
The Young Interpreters have been carefully chosen to represent all aspects of our diverse school. They are trained by Miss Craig and have regular meetings to review new starters and how to make children feel welcome in our school.
The Younger Interpreters are from a variety of backgrounds and use their language skills in a variety of ways to help new arrivals access English and feel part of the school. Alongside English-only speakers, they learn different strategies to clarify, explain and ‘interpret’ a whole range of school activities, systems and procedures to new entrants through the medium of pupil-friendly English where first language isn’t shared by other pupils or adults.
The Young Interpreter role will help establish a welcoming environment for our new students.
