Our Lady and St John’s Primary school is committed to ensuring that all children in KS2 receive high-quality Modern Foreign Language lessons, in line with the Statutory Requirements of the National Curriculum 2014.


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’.


In teaching a foreign language we aim to:

• Create learners who use languages to access ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures

• Foster a lifelong interest in language learning

• Encourage learners who are open-minded and who welcome diversity

• Foster children’s curiosity and develop their understanding and awareness of cultural differences in the world

• Make young children aware that language has structure, and that the structure differs from one language to another

•Develop children’s speaking, listening and responding skills

• Promote correct pronunciation and intonation when speaking a foreign language


Pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 receive bi-weekly French lessons with a French specialist.
