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
