L1 Policy (First Language) Policy

In order for all students to have the same opportunity to practise their language skills, English must be spoken in class. Any student who does not speak English in class will be warned twice then excluded for the remainder of the lesson.

Students are made aware of this when they are welcomed on the first day!

There are designated L1 areas for break and lunchtimes where students can speak their own language if they need to.

N.B. It is not possible to exclude junior students during a lesson, unless the Principal is called to the classroom. Junior students in multi-lingual/monolingual classes need to see the Principal or Assistant Director of Studies if they speak their own language and disrupt the learning of other students.
