Why do we learn French?

Individual and unique:

The overarching aims for our pupils are fluid communication and a broad cultural awareness in our multilingual and multicultural world. They will gain a strong phonetic knowledge to enable them to converse and a reinforcement of many literacy skills from their first language.


They will learn how to manipulate grammar and vocabulary to allow them to personalise information and retain core phrases that can be recycled in a large number of real-life situations.


We include “enrichment tasks” throughout our lessons, to encourage pupils to delve deeper in their learning and flourishing in their growth mindset.


Through this knowledge and confidence, they will become resilient and competent linguists who are open-minded and versatile communicators.
