About the Language Friendly School Network

The Language Friendly School Network is a Rutu Foundation initiative that encourages linguistic and cultural inclusivity in education. Schools with the language friendly label recognize and embrace their students’ multilingualism and take action to give space to these languages within the school community. Language Friendly Schools have a language plan involving students, teachers, and staff. Each plan is adapted to the school’s own needs and aims at creating an inclusive and language friendly learning environment for all students. The Language Friendly School has been selected as one of the hundred most inspiring innovations in K-12 education in 2020 and was nominated for the European Language Label Award in 2019. 

By working with the Language Friendly School, you are creating a world where all children have access to a language friendly-learning environment where they feel accepted and valued for who they are.
