Modern Foreign Languages (MFL): Statement of Intent

Learning another language is a vital part of being a member of a culturally diverse society.

At Victoria Road Primary School, we enable our pupils to celebrate and welcome the differences and similarities of other languages, cultures and countries.

Exposing children to a new language at a young age enables them to build on their knowledge in secondary school, become respectful and tolerant citizens, as well as excellent communicators.

Our Modern Foreign Language curriculum aims to inspire a love of languages as part of our children’s lifelong journey of learning.

In KS1, our pupils are taught some useful words and songs in different languages, reflecting our multi-cultural school community.

In KS2, this continues alongside the regular weekly teaching of French.


        Our aims in teaching a language are:


  • To develop an interest in learning other languages.

  • To introduce young children to another language in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating.

  • To encourage children’s confidence and creative skills through the exploration of another language.

  • To stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language.

  • To help children develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries.

  • To develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

  • To lay the foundations for future language learning.
