MFL- French

MFL at Buxworth Primary School

At Buxworth Primary School we want children to reach their full potential in physical, intellectual, emotional, aesthetic, social and spiritual growth. Therefore, MFL is intended to teach and inspire children and ensure that high quality language education is fostered in our children. This is to encourage curiosity and passion that will help to deepen their understanding of the world. We are committed to ensuring that competence and enthusiasm in learning another language enables children to interpret, create and exchange meaning within and across cultures.   We endeavour to guide our children to become and grow as global citizens, developing skills that could help to open further opportunities later in life. The teaching of French in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 focuses on the 4 areas: reading, writing (KS2), speaking and listening and provides an appropriate balance of these domains, laying the foundations for further foreign language teaching in KS3.
