Support for schools

Language support for schools is essential: there are over 1.6million EAL students (English as an additional Language) in the UK, and many of their parents/guardians have limited spoken English. It is vital that these individuals receive quality interpreting and translation support throughout the year.

As a leading language services provider to the public sector, The Language Shop (tls) has more than 30 years of experience of working with primary and secondary schools to ensure language is never a barrier to success and achievement.

Interpreters for schools

All our interpreters are UK-based and enhanced DBS verified, meaning they are fully screened and prepared to work in school settings. We also offer British Sign Language (BSL) interpreting to schools to ensure that no student is excluded.

We offer face-to-face interpreting for parents' evenings, disciplinary hearings, SEN assessments, school trips, Ofsted inspections and other scheduled meetings/events. We also provide 24/7/365 on-demand remote telephone interpreting sessions, allowing schools to be connected to an interpreter within 5 minutes in urgent situations. Schools can request to work with the same interpreter time and time again to maintain continuity for families.

Translation for schools

We also offer translation services for schools including templates for crucial documents such as consent forms and safeguarding policies to support with Ofsted compliance.
