Modern Foreign Languages

Aims and Objectives of MFL


In our school we recognise that learning a modern foreign language is a statutory entitlement for all pupils during their time in KS2 and we are committed to the principle that learning another language helps foster a curiosity and deeper understanding of other cultures and the world in general. 


We believe that learning to understand, speak, read and write another language during KS2 will provide the basis for learning other languages, which in turn will provide important opportunities for future study and work in other countries.  However, we also feel that as part of the wider curriculum KS1 will also benefit.  Therefore, in our school we teach French from Years 1-6.


Our main objectives in the teaching of French are to promote the development of linguistic competence and confidence in speaking and writing as well as an understanding and awareness of the world and other cultures.
