Hi, I'm Katherine Smith, a modern foreign languages graduate with experience of teaching in the public and private sectors, both in UK and Europe.
I established Vale Languages in 2001 as a specialist group, offering language tuition to primary school children.
Since then, I've taught hundreds of children in local schools in the Vale of Glamorgan and established a reputation of high quality language provision.
Languages Literacy & Communication
In line with the new National Curriculum requirements, Vale Languages delivers French and Spanish to KS 2 pupils. Children are encouraged to take risks in new language patterns and sounds as well as focus on new cultures. A strong foundation is established for further study at secondary school.
Click In-school training for examples of children's work & achievements.
Every academic year, we invite and perform for parents and teachers. KS 1 children sing action songs and KS 2 children present a play.
All children receive a certificate of attendance and some receive a special award for outstanding achievement. The clubs are not only about learning a language but growing in confidence and developing self-esteem.
