As adults, our children will be living and working in a multi-cultural world where speaking languages other than English will open the doors to careers and experiences that they might not otherwise be able to access.

With this in mind, we have French in our curriculum throughout Key stage 2. We have in place a programme of study which focusses on enabling pupils to make progress in one language. We have chosen French as it is a widely spoken language in Europe and is a language taught in our local secondary schools, therefore benefitting the children as they move into the next stage of their education. Foreign Languages are not a statutory part of the curriculum in Key Stage 1, however we expose our children to French vocabulary through incidental learning opportunities.
