Modern Foreign Language

Modern Foreign Language Intent


Language is at the heart of all the learning a child does. It is how they receive knowledge, express themselves and communicate. The learning of a language should enhance their abilities to communicate and help to develop their personal skills. Children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. We nurture children’s confidence to speak in another language and encourage children’s curiosity about language. Through their learning, children develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries and a greater awareness of the world in which they are part of. We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing with confidence to enable children to use and apply their French learning in a variety of ways and lay the foundations for future language learning.


We will provide practical and conversational learning, which is fully inclusive, through the use of games and songs. This will create an exciting, enjoyable and challenging learning environment where skills and knowledge will be built on year by year. We aim to foster a love for languages and inspire resilience in the children. The best way to achieve this is for children to feel happy and confident.
