CPD for staff to boost skills in language learning and teaching and sharing good practice
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

We have newly introduced Spanish as our MFL to KS2. We wish to introduce it to KS1 very shortly too. Before this French was being taught as our MFL across the Key Stages. Our aim is to improve language competence of staff members and build management confidence in leading this area and embedding it across the curriculum. We have recently linked with a partner school in Madrid and are excited and enthused to develop this partnership so our children are motivated to learn and understand about the European Dimension. The objective being that they eventually become better Global Citizens. To do this we are aware that staff members need to be developed at all levels. By giving the opportunity of participating in these courses to as many staff as possible, we aim to make the European/Spanish dimension a key part of our school life. In addition to these courses we wish to build a strong, mutually beneficial and sustainable relationship with our Spanish partners. We will begin to share and develop resources and good practice with the school and children and parents will be involved in our communication. We will use eTwinning as a platform for sharing our projects and look forward to welcoming members from our partner school to London and our school. The problem of Post Code wars should diminish when children from this area have a better understanding of the European Dimension and areas outside their Post Codes which have a rich, interesting and enduring attraction. We are committed to ensuring the abilities of our staff members is enhanced and they feel confident to contribute to the embedding of MFL across the curriculum, and not just the specialist language teacher. Our project will develop so everyone in our school community is included giving status to those involved in leading projects, designing new curriculum material and disseminating and evaluating the the outcomes. All participants will improve their language skills, their cultural understanding and ensure that the pupils in our school have the best possible support in learning Spanish. Our children should feel excited and motivated to love and understand the power of learning languages and develop better communication for all.
