"One to One" hot topics

Each Primary Languages Network member school is entitled to a free 1 to 1 consultancy with one of the designated associate primary language teachers or myself. The school year has only just started and so far this year we have met with over 40 colleagues in their own primary learning environments. Network members - you can book your school's free 1 to 1 consultancy here or also straight from the home page of the VLE ( top right hand corner).Feedback has been really pleasing....

just a quick note to say thanks for a really useful meeting with you on Tuesday. You were brimming with ideas and they were very helpful.
I had a very helpful consultancy meeting with Steph last night and we discussed our need for further training, as we have a couple of new members of staff delivering Spanish.
It was great to see Robert today and find out more about assessments and he has made me feel more confident about my new role as mfl co-ordinator. Please thank him for me
