Modern Foreign Languages

What is the curriculum trying to achieve?

The Modern Foreign Languages curriculum aims to prepare our students to become global citizens. We encourage learners to explore and appreciate the cultural differences of target language countries and aim to foster greater tolerance and respect for others. We endeavour to nurture linguistic curiosity that will motivate students to take their learning forward and enhance their knowledge of where words come from. We encourage students to embrace the ideas of resilience and being prepared to ‘have a go’ by acknowledging that while we strive for perfection, the communication and exchange of thoughts and ideas is our key objective.

How do we organise learning?     

Each of our subjects organises learning to achieve our federation vision of ‘Educating today’s students for the world of tomorrow: a seamless education from 4 to 19’.  Please click here to see a visual map of students’ planned ‘learning journey’ in Modern foreign languages across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5.
