Learning Village

In case you didn’t know, our school has a subscription to the award-winning Learning Village platform.



The Learning Village is an image-based English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme for learners in English-medium schools. It follows a blended approach, with a comprehensive online programme supported by offline, teacher-directed learning. Suitable for learners of any language background, it is also ideal for learners who are not yet literate. The programme is divided into two parts: The Village, for learners aged 6 to 14 years.

The programme has three strands. It teaches everyday survival language, helping learners with functional social language and the language of learning. It includes a full phonics programme, leading on to teaching the first 2,000 high frequency words to support learners with decoding the English script. Additionally, it includes academic and technical curriculum language to support learners with accessing the curriculum – primary and secondary – through curriculum content vocabulary and language structures.

The Village and The Islands include:

  • 10,000+ words and phrases, for speaking, listening, reading and writing
  • image-based learning, to assist learners who are unable to read in their mother tongue
  • excellent support for Special Educational Needs learners
  • techniques to help learners support themselves
  • support for blended learning and for self-study

The Village and The Islands adopt a blended approach: the comprehensive online programme is supported by offline, teacher-directed learning and resources.


To log in to the platform, children need the following login information which you can receive from Mrs Cusca by sending an email to or by asking their class teacher.





We encourage all students to access the Learning Village as often as they can from home or even on their journey to and from school. Language learning doesn’t have to feel like hard work and with the LearningVillage, the aim is to have your young person actively engaged in developing their language skills!
