Lambeth Council recognises that Wyvil's pupils are some of Lambeth's highest achievers. The school is proud to be a strategic partner of the Somos Lambeth project. Somos Lambeth is an LSP initiative that focuses on raising the achievement and profile of Portuguese-speaking students in Lambeth.
Lambeth is home to one of the largest Portuguese-speaking populations in the UK, and as of 2018, Portuguese-speaking pupils make up 7% of Lambeth’s total school population. However, Portuguese-speaking pupils are also Lambeth’s lowest attaining pupil group. This underachievement represents a waste of potential and we as a borough should set an example to other local authorities and schools in improving Portuguese-speaking pupils’ attainment and celebrating Portuguese-Lambeth identity.
Somos Lambeth has the following three strands:
- An improved offer for Portuguese-speaking pupils in Lambeth schools
- Celebrating Portuguese-speaking Identity in Lambeth
- Supporting Families and Community Collaboration
