Language of the month



To promote our vision of preparing children for tomorrow’s world, and to celebrate the fabulous diversity of our community, we celebrate language of the month. Our families come from a range of cultures and backgrounds and as a multi-cultural school, there are children and adults who speak many different languages. The languages spoken include English, Punjabi, Italian, Polish, Bulgarian, Spanish, Urdu, Afrikaans  Arabic, Cantonese, Telugu, Farsi and Bengali. We also have children who use a sign language called Makaton. There are many reasons we should know about each other’s languages, including the following: -


To show respect for each other’s languages and cultures

To give parents and carers the chance to be actively involved in their children's learning

To broaden the language skills of all the children and staff.

To give bilingual children the opportunity to demonstrate their language skills
