Primary Language Quality Mark
We have also awarded with the Primary Language Quality Mark at Gold Level. This is mainly due to our French curriculum, which had to undergo rigorous inspection. It met all the criteria with flying colours. However, the quality mark recognised everything we do in terms of language learning in our school – our curriculum, language of the half term, our lunchtime Spanish Club and all our international work.
Language of the Half Term
Our language of the half term is Arabic. This language is spoken by several pupils and one member of staff in our school. We have been doing an international project with our link school in Jordan and it seemed appropriate to choose their language. Please ask your children to share some some words with you.

Year 4 make crêpes
The French curriculum reflects learning across the school and reflects the values of Leatherhead Trinity School. Year 4 have been finding out about the French custom of La Chandaleur in early February and also the Christian significance of Mardi Gras (Shrove Tuesday) and the carnival period preceeding Lent. They enjoyed making their own crêpes.
