  1. It must be an error.

    Don't know if this is upport for MFL or the exact opposite, but our deputy head said we could go straight to the AQA Certificate for the current year 11 if we wish as, although it will not count to the 5 A-C until next year, the school didn't need the MFL results enough for them to alter the final % of A*-C x 5.

    A difficult one. What are you planning to do?

    I would probably wait in your shoes.
     
  6. We have an open evening on Thursday and the head has asked us to do an introductory session in the 3 main languages we teach. I am delighted as it can only raise our profile.

    Someone has told our head that he is notorious on tes- luckily I don't think he knew either what notoriuos meant or what tes is!

    Amusing but not unexpected I feel.

    Sorry to disappoint you but he is keeping a low profile.

    Not one of his best by any means but he seems to have (inadvertently) omitted MFL from list of subjects for prize giving!

    He later attributed this omission to someone else.

  17. Just back from a French exchange- the last ever- as our head says that we can no longer justify them!

    What a pity. Why no more?

    Our exchange to Germany flourishes, but other 2 have died a natural death I'm afraid.

    How can it be possible for a school to fail to support a MFL department which runs exchanges in this day and age ? Let`s be honest,an exchange is, probably,the only MFL trip that could be 100 % justified in a school context !!!!.Is this a financial issue ? Is it that staff have to be covered in their absence ?Do other departments get to go on trips which have equal or greater educational merit for their subject ?
