From Foundation Op Kop is since 2011 active policy in the field of early foreign language education. Students we want to prepare as well as possible for their future. English is in our opinion essential in the future as well as possible in our ever to function more internationally oriented society. We therefore introduce English as Early Foreign Language in all of our 20 schools from group 1 to 8, along with a robust professional development program for all teachers. The policy aims to satisfy all of our 20 schools in 2017 to mark the Early Bird and high quality English is taught in groups 1 to 8. There is an English coordinator appointed to monitor this process. The policy is firmly anchored in the strategic policy of the Foundation and the school (years) plans of the schools.All teachers of Foundation Op Kop are trained in teaching English. All teachers at Foundation Cup therefore have received training since 2011 (by school or with other schools) for their English proficiency and pedagogy for providing challenging teaching in English. In addition, there was in 2013 a plenary seminar in the framework of English place for all employees and follow several employees (teachers and directors) courses and conferences provided from EarlyBird focus on providing the best possible way of English in primary education.Internal audits are conducted to monitor the quality of the data and to promote English. Fellow directors auditing with a standardized set of guidelines for Early Bird (after two years of English Group 1 to 8 have entered) in pairs all schools. Quality is evaluated and recommendations are made to boost quality. In the fourth year, the final audit by EarlyBird place. We will then continue to monitor the quality by means of internal audits by our, trained by Eurly Bird, auditors.As part of it we promote the quality of the data at our English schools would like 13 teachers (of four different elementary schools) to participate in the Pilgrims Engelish Language Course "Methodology & Language for primary teachers" in Canterbury in 2016. By according to the Pilgrim Course for 13 teachers on the language skills of teachers will be improved, both for their own skill as teaching methodology, this will have a stimulating effect on the quality of the education provided.

Teachers gain confidence in teaching English to young learners and tips and ideas to teach in the group. There will also be, because four schools Foundation Cup going on at the same time, more knowledge sharing between the schools place themselves.
