Language of the Month


We are very proud to have over 24% of our pupils who speak one or more languages additional to English - 27 different languages in total! 

We celebrate all our linguists, and select a 'Language of the Month', where we focus on one language spoken in our school each month and identify our language 'experts' in each class.  They coach peers, colleagues and visitors to learn a few basic words and greetings in their home language.  Parents are invited into school as part of the celebration of languages and we run events where recipes and food are shared from all areas of the globe!

We film a selection of home language speakers and upload clips, so this can be shared in class or by children and parents at home so everyone can practice their new language skills!
