Modern Foreign Languages (MFL): Statement of Intent



To enable our children to celebrate and welcome differences in our world it is vital they have an understanding of different languages and countries.  By introducing and exposing our children to this, they will have a deepened ability to show respect and play a valuable part in our global society.  To achieve this end point we aim, though our MFL curriculum, to inspire a love of languages as part of their lifelong journey of learning.


Although MFL  is not compulsory in Key Stage 1, children are taught basic words and songs in different languages. In Key Stage 2, children learn French as their modern foreign language


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.
