MFL Statement of Intent

‘You are the light of the world’

Through the delivery of the MFL curriculum, we foster independence and focus on developing resilient learners. Our curriculum is designed so that all pupils are exposed to a varied selection of resources so that all pupils have the opportunity to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Our children have regular opportunities to read and listen to others; this requires courage and a continuing culture of respect.

The National Curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

We believe that through these opportunities, children can become confident, life-long learners of MFL who will shine in the world.
