Intercultural Education

The school community is enriched by the presence of pupils from many different cultural backgrounds. Children for whom English is not a first language are provided with additional supports. The language support team delivers a programme of English language tuition which is based exclusively on the primary curriculum and which prepares and supports the child in accessing classroom learning and socializing with peers. We have two fully equipped language rooms.
