Components for Teachers

Lead the Way is a LOMLOE-compliant course that takes primary pupils one step further in language learning and develops social-emotional learning, teamwork and communication skills.


  • Leading the way with multi-literaciesA unique focus on multi-literacies via visually engaging multi-media texts which develop essential critical, visual and information literacy skills; guiding students to become better language learners by developing their linguistic mediation skills and their ability to facilitate mutual understanding of texts. 
  • Leading the way to bilingualismBuilding bridges between subjects to facilitate cross-curricular learning, and carefully links English and Science content. This supports teaching and learning and allows teachers to easily recycle and reinforce key science content within the English classroom, and encourages children to develop plurilingual strategies.
  • Leading the way with real world communicationProviding real world content that gives students a genuine purpose to communicate in meaningful real-world contexts.  Termly projects require pupils to work collaboratively to respond to inspiring real-world challenges and learning situations, which activate problem-solving and decision-making skills.
  • Leading the way to inclusive classroomsOffering new solutions and a wealth of innovative resources for supporting ‘Every Ability’ classes. Teachers have the tools  to create an inclusive classroom in which every child learns, in every lesson, to the very best of their ability, setting them up for exam success.
  • Leading the way to wellbeingWith a social and emotional learning syllabus supported by optional mindfulness resources, which creates a positive classroom environment optimum for child-centred learning. Nurturing lifelong learning strategies, and a responsible attitude towards sustainability and inclusivity, Lead the Way has global citizenship and wellbeing at its heart.
