Modern Foreign Languages

The aim of the Modern Languages Department is to create successful language learners whom are confident in communicating their knowledge, understanding and respect for other customs and cultures.

In MFL, we believe that learning another language gives pupils the opportunity to develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. We give our pupils have the opportunity to explore the similarities and differences between Spanish and English and also learn how language can be manipulated and applied in different contexts. The development of the pupil’s communication skills can help to build friendships and links directly to the Controlled Speaking Assessments which take place at KS4; plus understanding the structure of a language can help with the development of general literacy skills.

Key Stage 3 - Assessment is against National Curriculum Levels and our half termly report is based on work and tests your child has done during that half term.
