A school has credited staff for embedding foreign languages into its students’ daily lives, after reaching the gold standard for education.

Stoke-by-Nayland Primary School was awarded Gold Linguamarque status, which recognises schools for high standards in linguistics.

Headteacher Jane Le Grice praised the leadership of French teacher Tracy Davies, explaining the status had been earned not just through its teaching of languages, but by developing understanding of other cultures.

“We are absolutely delighted to have achieved this,” she said. “It has come with quite a lot of hard work and it’s reinforced through the entire curriculum.

“The children are incredibly proud. One of them even asked ‘is there a diamond status?’

“We have talked about the impact it can have going forward when they decide what GCSEs to take and what jobs they might do.

“Sometimes, you see a lack of confidence in trying a language, but this has given them that confidence.

“We are looking to raise their aspirations as to what they can do, and good foreign language education helps to achieve that.”
