Polish Language Learning Motion, 5/05/15 [S]

Motion lodged before the Scottish Parliament on 5 May 2015 by Jean Urquhart (Ind) on Polish Language Learning. The full text of the motion reads:

That the Parliament welcomes the 1+2 approach to language learning in primary schools; congratulates those local authorities, including Highland Council, that have already appointed 1+2 Development Officers to realise the ambition of having two languages besides English taught in all primary schools; welcomes the offer of assistance in developing Scotlandís Polish language teaching from the Consul General of the Republic of Poland in Edinburgh; understands that Polish is, after English, the language most commonly spoken at home by Scottish school pupils; believes that Polish language teaching in some schools would give pupils the opportunity to learn from each other and promote integration, and commends the efforts of campaigners and educators working to expand the availability of Polish language teaching and qualifications in Scotland.
