Our Best Practice Schools

Our 13 Language First Best Practice Schools spread across the 4 Local Authorities, have all received first-hand training from University of Oxford and development by specialist language coaches to firmly embed the Language First Principles. These schools are committed to sharing Language First in action, in their schools and settings, with specialisms in: EAL, SEND; outdoor learning; parental engagement; Makaton; adult-child interaction and language-rich learning environments.

These schools open their doors to neighbouring settings as part of the project offer, and host learning walks and modelled sessions.

Many of these schools have enjoyed success and improved outcomes beyond EYFS, by extending the principles into Key Stage 1 and 2.

Ryders Hayes and Manor School are also host schools for Voice Black Country working with School21, Stratford, London to raise the profile of Oracy across school.
