Language of the Month
A message from Mr Berwick, Headteacher
"We are proud of the many languages spoken by the children and staff at Jubilee Wood. We have over 45 different languages spoken at home by the children and many of our children join our school with little or no English. We like to celebrate this diversity. Our English as an Additional Language (EAL) teachers run our Language of the Month and highlight the talented children we have in our school."
