At Chaddesley Corbett Primary school we believe that by teaching our children a foreign language, they will deepen their awareness of the wider world and encourage a curiosity and respect for other cultures. A high quality language education should enable pupils to both express their ideas in other language as well as understand and respond to its speakers. At our school, this is achieved through a mixture of listening and responding, speaking, reading and writing through a variety of stimulating and fun-filled activities. At KS1, language teaching is not compulsory but children will experience some simple phrases in other languages through a wider thematic curriculum. Currently, in KS2 we are fortunate to be involved in a project, part funded by The Japan Society in Great Britain, where the children are being taught to speak Japanese and are learning about Japanese culture, with a specialist teacher supporting our class teachers.
Chaddesley Corbett Endowed Primary School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
