At Senacre Wood Primary, we aim for our MFL curriculum to enable children develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. The main language we learn in KS2 is French, although we also aim to help pupils develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries around the world.


Using the National Curriculum for MFL, we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop their confidence when communicating in a different language leading to improvements when speaking and writing using a second language.
  • Enjoy participating in their MFL lessons and expanding their vocabulary through a variety of fun activities in lessons.
  • Are provided with an excellent base knowledge of a modern foreign language in preparation for learning a language at secondary school.

Our main aim is that pupils take away positive experiences about learning a new language in the hope that they choose to pursue learning a language later on in their education.


For details of how we implement this within our school and how we measure the impact, please read our MFL policy
