Why is the system changing?
What will be changing?
“During an inspection, if Ofsted are to “dig deep” in MFL, what can I expect?”
Note: if MFL is not delivered on the day of inspection, all of the above will still happen other than lesson observations – book scrutiny
“What questions might I be asked as MFL Lead or MFL teacher in my primary school?”
If MFL is evidently not a priority, Ofsted will want to see a plan of how the school will achieve the above.
Ofsted are asking the question: “Who is leading primary languages in primary schools?”
What are Ofsted looking for in primary languages?
“12 years of education should give children a solid foundation for languages” Ofsted, January 2019
“What if my school is an Academy?”

Are you aware that 21st June is National Yoga Day? How are you celebrating within your school? We are very passionate about Yoga, which you can see on our Yoga page. We at Head Office also have regular Yoga sessions during the term.
It has been proven to help with mental health - many schools are now taking this up for both children and staff to help with wellbeing throughout the week. Please get in touch to see how we can help you.
This last half term has flown by - there are less than 7 weeks before the Summer Holidays now! Have you confirmed your PPA provision for the new academic year? If not, we are currently timetabling and have flexibility for all subjects on the days that you require so please do get in touch for more information!
Did you know that this week is National Mental Health Week? Due to the SATs also taking place this week, this is coming more to the forefront of everyones minds at this point in the year. Are you prepared moving forward in the new academic year? Many schools are now looking at confirming arrangments for September and changing the way they do their PPA with this in mind. Yoga and Mindfulness work well alongside other subjects and can be done in the classroom or hall.

The children in our schools have been very busy this week creating some great works of art within their Spanish and French lessons! This was a brilliant end of term treat for all their hard work during the Spring - I think everyone has agreed that this term has felt like the longest!
