Dundee is truly a multilingual, multicultural city boasting over 60 languages spoken in our schools. We are proud of our bilingual learners and encourage them to maintain and develop their home language while acquiring English. We wholeheartedly support parents/carers, schools and communities in their endeavours to ensure that Dundee's bilingual learners achieve their potential and enjoy all the advantages that being bilingual can bring in the world today.
The Bilingual Pupils' Support Service is a front-line education service with a wealth of knowledge and experience in this field. The BPSS teachers and bilingual co-workers work together to provide a wide-reaching service that values all the languages used in our city.
The advice and recommendations given in these guidelines should be followed by every school in Dundee so that our bilingual learners are well supported throughout their school life.
