Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Curriculum

The National Curriculum (2014) states:

Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries. 

Modern Foreign Languages at Ss Peter and Paul

St. Peter and Paul’s Catholic Primary School is committed to encouraging a love for languages from an early age.

All children are encouraged to experiment with language and make links between their own language and a Modern Foreign language. They are given opportunities for song, role play, speaking and listening, writing and cultural learning often relating to festivals and celebrations.

Our vision:

  • To engage, inspire and challenge all pupils.

  • To create a love for languages in our pupils and offer them an understanding of differences and similarities to their own language.
