Language teaching at an Ipswich primary school has been recognised after it started studying in a new way.
Headteacher of St Mark's Catholic School Claire Jackson was "very pleased" to receive the Gold Linguamarque accreditation, along with language teacher Carole Starling and her pupils.
The school also thanked Marina Dixon, its language adviser, who guided them through Linguamarque.
Dr Dixon said: "Congratulations to you all – you truly deserve this! The teaching of languages at St Mark’s is really outstanding.
"And well done to your amazing pupils for all their hard work."
