We are pleased to share the news that we have been recognised for our language teaching and have been awarded the ‘Enhancing’ Primary Languages Development Award from the Primary Languages Network. This award is designed to give schools the opportunity to raise the profile of modern foreign language learning and to embed good teaching and learning in the curriculum.
Since introducing Spanish in September 2022, Miss Pape, Director of MFL, has passionately led the development and success of primary foreign languages across the school in KS1 and KS2.
Miss Pape said that, ‘At Bourne Elsea Park we believe that learning a new language gives our pupils the skills and understanding they need to develop their aspirations and knowledge of the world as well as an understanding of their own culture and identity.’
We are absolutely thrilled that the combination of the Trust’s vision, the incredible commitment of the Director of Languages and the engagement and enthusiasm of the children have contributed to this amazing progress. We look forward to seeing how much more the school progresses in its whole school language learning journey.
