The English National Primary Programme

The English National primary classes exist for children in the upper five years of French primary education: CP, CE1, CE2, CM1 and CM2. These are the age-group equivalent of British years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Any child attending English National primary lessons must be in one of these classes in a French primary school in the Pays de Gex.

ENP Primary lessons, which occupy one afternoon of 3 hours’ teaching (with a short break) on Tuesday or Wednesday each week (CP, CE1, CE2) or on Wednesday or Friday each week (CM1, CM2), are based on the development of reading, writing and speaking and listening skills in English. They follow courses and materials based on the English National Curriculum, and involving assessment of pupils using National Curriculum attainment criteria.
