Could your staff and children benefit from specialist support?

No matter what your budget, we can help! Get in touch

Passport Languages Solutions have been working with local Primary schools for the last 8 years.  We are very proud of the longstanding relationships we have built with our schools and the developments we have helped them make in delivering MFL, not to mention the fantastic achievements of the children we teach.

We appreciate that every school is at a different stage in implementing MFL, which is why we take a personalised approach to the support we offer.

How do you teach MFL in your school?

PPA cover

Allowing schools to have their MFL delivered by a specialist teacher, whilst benefitting from having the same qualified and experienced teacher covering PPA.

Teaching MFL through PPA can be a great way to ensure that all the requirements of this specialist subject are being met in a budget-friendly way.

What do you get?
  • Qualified teacher with experience teaching in Primary schools, who is also a linguist and able to use this combination of skills to deliver MFL lessons at the highest level.
  • Planning, which will be designed to fit into your school’s curriculum e.g. if you plan through themes we will plan our MFL lessons to fit in with this.
  • Assessment, which will allow all staff to see the progress made by each child. Our assessment tools can be adapted to fit in with the school’s assessment policy.
  • You will be allocated a School’s Relationship Manager who will work with the Senior Leadership Team and MFL coordinator to ensure that all aspects of MFL and your partnership with us are working well.
  • PPA will be delivered by the same teacher each week (apart from in the event of illness or unforeseen absence) allowing the teacher to build relationships with staff and children.
  • Above all, we will ensure that MFL is a fun and engaging aspect of the curriculum where all children are given the opportunity to achieve their potential and learn about languages and cultures.

Team-teaching

Helps upskill staff, ensuring both them and the children benefit from a specialist language teacher and the school receives the long term benefits of their investment.

Teaching MFL through our team-teaching format is a great way to ensure that MFL is being delivered to the highest standard, whilst up-skilling your own staff and giving them a vital opportunity for CPD.

What do you get?
  • Qualified teacher with experience teaching in Primary schools, who is also a linguist and able to use this combination of skills to deliver MFL lessons at the highest level.
  • Planning, which will be designed to fit into your school’s curriculum e.g. if you plan through themes we will plan our MFL lessons to fit in with this. This can be carried out alongside the class teacher or independently with their input.
  • Assessment tools and training to help staff better understand the expectations and allow them to assess the progress made by each child. Our assessment tools can be adapted to fit in with the school’s assessment policy.
  • You will be allocated a School’s Relationship Manager who will work with the Senior Leadership Team and MFL coordinator to ensure that all aspects of MFL and your partnership with us are working well.
  • Team-teaching will be delivered by the same teacher each week (apart from in the event of illness or unforeseen absence) allowing the teacher to build relationships with staff and children.
  • Above all, we will ensure that MFL is a fun and engaging aspect of the curriculum, where all children are given the opportunity to achieve their potential and learn about languages and cultures and that staff are given the opportunity to increase their skills and confidence.

Progress Tracking

Assisting schools in tracking progression, giving schools a simple and easy to use assessment and progression package that can be adapted to suit each schools own personal approach to tracking progression.

Our assessment and progression package can be used as part of one of our other packages of solutions or on its own.

What do you get?
  • Assessment sheets for each year group
  • Options for self-assessment to accompany this
  • Full training and support for how to use these tools

Staff Training

Staff training and upskilling, to give staff the confidence to deliver MFL or to help them plan for and understand the requirements of the curriculum.

What do you get?
  • Whether it is a one-off session, INSET day, series of twilight sessions, staff meeting, we will accommodate your time allocation and design a session to meet your needs.
  • Certificates are available for staff who complete training
  • The content of training will be designed to suit your needs
  • Training can be done on an individual basis e.g. for a teacher who is new to KS2, or new to a language or for a whole staff

After-School Clubs

After-school clubs, to help raise the profile of MFL in school or perhaps to give younger children an introduction to language learning before KS2.

What do you get?
  • Weekly sessions of 45 mins or 1 hour
  • Clubs can be held before school, at lunchtime or after-school
  • Clubs can run for Foundation Stage, KS1, KS2, whole school or specific year groups, depending on your requirements
  • We require a minimum of 10 children to run our clubs
  • Schools can be invoiced for payments or PLS will provide letters and collect payments through school office

Events

One-off events such as language days, multicultural days.

What better way to raise the profile of MFL, have a cultural focus, celebrate the end of a topic or a national or international event!

What do you get?
  • Events can last as long as you wish from one hour e.g. story-telling to a full day or even a week of activities.
  • You tell us what you are wanting to celebrate e.g. Multicultural week, European Day of Languages, Olympics, a topic and we will design a day to fit this.
  • This is a great opportunity to make links with other areas of the curriculum e.g. PE, Music, Art, IT, please ask us for details of how we can do this.
  • All our event proposals will come with 3 costs options, but if you have a budget in mind please tell us and we will work to that.
  • When children will be asked to contribute we can arrange for letters to be sent home to parents explaining the event and asking for a contribution.

Relationship Manager

Every school we work with is allocated a relationship manager so they always have one person who they can contact with any queries and who will make sure they are receiving the support they need.

Our aim is to help schools to achieve their goals for MFL, but also to ensure that all of the children are inspired and enthusiastic about learning a language and experiencing other cultures.

Resources Bank

Every school that takes on one of our solutions will be eligible to use the Resources Bank full of activities to support learning MFL online.  The Resources Bank is designed to contain a variety of materials for both teachers and pupils alike.

It will be updated on a regular basis to include any extra seasonal materials.
