Primary Languages Policy in England - Making it happen!
Institute of Education, University College London
JOIN A CALL TO ACTION ON PRIMARY LANGUAGES
The Research in Primary Languages Network (RIPL) is organising a call to action on primary languages, bringing together leading figures from the language community and practitioners to plan and discuss the next steps for primary language policy in England.
This event will address key issues affecting the success of primary languages and put 10 recommendations from the recently published RIPL White Paper to the test.
Come and join leading practitioners and policy makers in an interactive day where your views will directly feed into a draft implementation strategy to inform the way forward for primary languages in England.
This White Paper is the outcome of the RIPL Primary Languages Policy Summit, which took place on Friday 23rd November 2018 at the British Academy in London. The Summit gathered together under the Chatham House Rule key players in policy making and leading practitioners and academics from across the country. Summit participants discussed briefing papers circulated beforehand, position statements and presentations of current and best practice. The views and contributions of all the Summit participants were taken into account in elaborating a strategy to overcome some of the challenges currently faced by primary schools in delivering the statutory requirement for languages.
