French is taught to all Key Stage 2 pupils as part of the school curriculum.  We believe that learning a language encourages children to be curious and deepen  their understanding of the world.


This school includes a large number of children from a range of cultures with first languages other than English. This is a situation to be celebrated and used to widen the horizons of all our pupils.


Our curriculum ensures that all pupils:         


  • Understand and can respond to spoken and written language
  • Speak with confidence, fluency and can communicate through discussion and asking and answering questions.
  • Pronounce words accurately
  • Can write at different levels for a purpose
  • Discover and develop an enthusiasm for language


We follow the National Curriculum 2014 and the Framework for Languages. See the link

Children are taught to:
