Ofsted good practice example showing how Springfield Lower pupils make rapid progress in Italian.
At Springfield Lower School, teaching Italian through an approach based on content and language integrated learning (CLIL) is firmly established. Language lessons use the current topic in the curriculum for their content. Links with Italy and its culture provide rich opportunities to develop the pupils’ understanding and appreciation of other cultures. Modern language learning is for all pupils; disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs and those for whom English is an additional language make especially good progress.
