MFL – French

Vision Statement

Together we inspire one another to love learn respect and forgive, rooted and built up in Christ, so that every member of our school community can develop and flourish; united in mutual respect with a sense of belonging.

Intent of the teaching and learning of MFL

We want our children to have a wide range of cultural opportunities and an experience of speaking another language.

We teach our children to be respectful of other cultures and live-out British values of tolerance and respect.

Implementation of the teaching and learning of MFL

The teaching and learning of MFL is delivered using The Primary French Project as a base and cultural events and celebrations are used to broaden our children’s experiences and knowledge.

Our curriculum is enriched through links with the MFL department at our feeder school, St Paul’s and children from KS3 and 4 plan events for our children as part of their learning.

Our children learn how to pronounce, read, sing, pray and write short sentences in other languages- French is currently taught across KS2.

Impact of the teaching and learning of MFL

As a school, we constantly review our provision to make sure it is fit for purpose and meets the needs currently in our cohort. We assess through teacher assessment, pictures and video evidence which can be accessed by all teaching staff to ensure skills and knowledge are built upon each year.

Teaching and learning of MFL is a reflective process for the children as they are given the opportunities to assess themselves and their peers. We allow the children to celebrate their success’ and skills with their peers.
