EMTAS phone lines (Term time only)

 

Language phone lines for parents/carers, Hampshire maintained schools and SLA-supported academies

Phone lines may only be used to support communication with a child where an adult is present with the child for the duration of the phone call.

 

Please ring us on our help lines below for information and support with home-school communication or if you have any questions relating to your child's education or well-being.
