Ignite TSA work in partnership with Primary Languages Network

We have a range of CPD events across the year and Ignite schools are able to access the Primary Languages Network VLE for a massively reduced cost as part of membership.

Ignite schools are able to access our MFL professional learning network for free. There are 3 sessions across the year and all take place at St Bernard’s RC Primary – A Voluntary Academy.

Session 1: Monday 11th November 1:30 – 3:00pm

Session 2: Monday 2nd March 1:30 – 3:00pm

Session 3: Monday 29th June 1:30 – 3:00pm

Non Ignite members are more than welcome to join the sessions for a small fee.

Please note that when you you make a booking, it is for all 3 sessions and you will be required to provide the name and direct email address of the delegate attending

  • To provide a professional networking opportunity for Ignite TSA schools who use the Primary Languages Network VLE and resources.
  • To develop and enhance the delivery of primary languages in individual schools.
  • To explore creative links across the whole school curriculum with a specific focus on “Conservation” and “Adrift”

The three network meetings per year will be delivered by Janet Lloyd/Will Lloyd and Robert Artingstall. 

Each session will consist of:

Update and networking time: to offer teachers the chance to look in more depth at how the materials and resources on the VLE can strengthen the development of primary languages in individual schools and meet the requirements of the DFE KS2 MFL POS. 

Review and reflect on practice time: an opportunity to further upskill in core target language, grammar, pedagogy and excellent primary practice to ensure delivery of effective primary foreign language learning back in school.

Ignite TSA focus time: hands on workshops on specific activities and resources to introduce and develop creative primary language learning around the Ignite TSA themes of “Conservation” and “Adrift” (Materials have already been created by PLN for this purpose).
