This is a very good submission and an example of a strong
Silver Award. There is a lot of evidence of innovation in the use of ICT
(including Apple Clips) and of learners being involved in their learning. There
were good examples of planning and linking towards Developing the Young
Workforce and Curriculum for Excelllence as well as the practical application
of Languages in an employability setting. The learner feedback showed that
there was a culture of languages being more valued within the school. However,
despite the richness of the project, which focused on P4-5 with the input of
language ambassadors in P7, it was felt that it may have been slightly
restricted in its scope in terms of reaching more of the learners in the school
in P7. Examples of other language-related projects within the school and the
long-term continuation of this project would both be conducive towards
achieving a Gold Award in future and, as a pilot school for the Award, St
Mary’s Bannockburn can be commended for its efforts in bringing this project to
fruition in partnership with Bannockburn House.
