Chase Lane becomes a Silver Linguamarque accredited school.
Our big language news this year is that further to our successful Bronze accreditation by Linguamarque last year (2017-18) Chase Lane proudly became a Silver Linguamarque accredited school in April 2019. We are delighted with the award which is a tribute to all the hard work the children do in their Language lessons.
The school's language project for the next academic year is to gain our Gold Linguamarque, placing us in the company of some of the best Language teaching Primary Schools in the country. You can read about Linguamarque and why we are proud of our accreditation at: https://www.schoolschoice.org/system/files/lis-Linguamarque.pdf
