Over recent years the languages spoken by the children and parents of Park Road Academy Primary School have become increasingly varied and diverse. We acknowledge and celebrate this diversity encouraging the children to share their knowledge and skills with us.
Children with an additional language to English have the opportunity to join ‘The Parrot Club’.
The club meets one lunch time each week and the children play English focused games to develop skills such as vocabulary building. The children also have the opportunity to choose topics for discussion. These group discussions are initially in English and then the children regroup and talk in their home language. This provides children with the opportunity and confidence to develop their English as well as maintaining their knowledge and pride in their home language.
