LOTE - Languages Other Than English

At OLHC, we have Italian as our LOTE.                                                                                                                                    

In 2015, all children have a weekly lesson with our Italian Specialist Teacher for half the year. The Italian curriculum helps the children develop Italian language skills as well as develop understandings of Italian culture. We have deliberately chosen to maintain Italian as our LOTE as it has links to English so that all children can be supported in their learning, and we believe it provides a strong basis for further language learning in Secondary School.
