I am hoping to visit both types of school to conduct my own research but need some research to help me plan my study. If you do find any resources I would be extremely grateful. T
Modern languages Primary
Modern languages Primary I am a Scitt student preparing a research assignment for my course. I have decided to research how successful two local primary schools have been in translating the 'languages for all:languages for life' policy.

Are there any articles or books you can suggest to help me comple

I have also found some general information on the role of the school in the child's social and emotional devel
