Community Village

Alongside our hub schools, many other schools have taken part in the development of the Learning Village through assessing the impact on learners, piloting various features and collaborating on requirements. The following documents provides some useful insights on the impact of the Learning Village on member schools.


The Learning Village team would like to thank all the hub schools for their ongoing efforts and contribution to the growing community of Learning Village schools.

Deena Shihadah

TA, Walton-le-Dale High School

It was a very fascinating and useful course that has multiple amazing ways to help engage EAL students through a variety of ways and also with a format that makes it fun for the students to learn. The course was really well set out, everything was broken down in a way that could be easily followed and all questions asked were answered quickly and very well!

Keely Walker

Teacher and EAL Lead, Heronsgate Primary

Brilliant resources that are quick and easy to use but provide high quality, effective resources.

Jo Bridges

Headteacher, Widney Junior School

Having been a SENCO and now Headteacher, I can honestly say that this is the best resource for EAL learners I have come across. Having taken part in a range of online training in the past 2 years, this was excellent. Lots of information given and very interactive. Presenters were extremely professional and clearly had a lot of knowledge they were able to impart effectively.

Katie Eastwood

Teacher and EAL Coordinator, St Botolph's Primary School

The resources will really help all members of staff at school.

Jess Doyle

Class teacher and EAL Leads, Wellington Lions Primary Academy

I found this training very informative. It allowed me to explore all of the sections of the site which would be beneficial to the children in my school. It also gave me an insight into all the different resources that can be used when supporting language learning.

Jazmine Clark

TA, Edith Cavell Primary School

Thank you so much for providing me with so much information and knowledge on how to use this as an effective learning tool.

Boglarka Fercsi

Head of EAL, Crab Lane Primary School

[The course] exceeded my expectation. There are lots of tools now that could be used with the whole class instead of just the EALs. Thank you for your continuous hard work.

Kirk Shuttleworth

EAL Lead, Rounds Green Primary

Fantastic course as always! New ideas to take children to the next level.

Michelle Barclay

LSA, Haseltine Primary

Your training sessions are always informative and I like the way we have help while exploring new things.

Cindy Jones

EAL Teacher, Hartland International School

I really like the practical nature of the training. One can try and ask questions when you are stuck.
