"This is my first year using CLPE planning and I have to say  that I feel that my English teaching has greatly improved. I am more enthusiastic in my teaching, my pupils have become more engaged, and there is far more speaking, listening, vocabulary, drama, role-play, art and writing woven throughout my teaching." 
Joanna Shobbrook, Year 5/6 Teacher, St Michael’s Primary School.
