General Information on the Comenius Assistant Programme and our Comenius Assistant:

We were very pleased to be joined for the 2012/2013 school year by Andreia Ribeiro, our Comenius Assistant from Portugal.  A Comenius Assistant is a 'Future Teacher' who spends a placement in our school to study the UK education system and develop their skills.  They spend some time familiarising our community with their language and also in raising awareness of their own country.  It is a programme which, in the UK, is funded through the British Council and represents a wonderful opportunity for us to expand the international dimension and raise awareness of Europe with our pupils.

Miss Ribeiro followed two years after our first Comenius Assistant, Danil Miljutin, who joined us from Estonia.  He introduced some conversational Russian to our pupils during his placement.  We aim to apply for another assistant for the 2014/2015 academic year.
