“With Languages, you are at home anywhere.” – Edward De Waal

We deliver a consistent and progressive scheme of learning which allows children to learn a modern foreign language through speaking, reading, listening and writing in the target language. Our curriculum builds on children’s understanding of the language through engaging with the taught vocabulary in a range of ways.

Learning a modern foreign language develops tolerance of other cultures, engages interest in the wider world and allows our pupils to develop the aspiration to live and work in another country where a secure knowledge of the language is the key to successful immersion.


The aim of our curriculum is to ensure that children enter Key Stage 3 with the ability to speak, read, write and aurally understand French independently and with confidence. Children will then be able to apply their experience of learning a language to the acquisition of other languages in the next stage of their education.
