The school’s vision is modelled in the MfL curriculum, where we believe in inclusive education for all.

We believe that all of our students deserve a curriculum that meets their differing needs and enables them to fulfil their unique potential.

We want our students to be successful members of the community and to maximise their life opportunities. It is the intention of the curriculum to enable this.

Core Values across the curriculum MFL

Updated: 17/01/2023 744 KB

Our curriculum intent is:

  • Coherently plan, sequence and adapt our curriculum to meet the unique needs of all of our learners.
  • Offer breadth of study at KS3 that is sequential in leading to study at GCSE level; all students will be stretched and challenged over 5 years, taking into account different starting points.
  • Develop effective literacy and numeracy skills through digital technology creating learners who are confident and competent readers, writers and speakers, with essential analytical skills needed for life.
  • Embed a range of wider enrichment opportunities and experiences, at least one per year, to ensure our learners have an educational experience that is rich and varied.
  • Encompass the whole school core values through the MfL curriculum.

As a result, the MFL curriculum will:

  • Ensure all students understand the value of learning a foreign language.
  • Ensure students have a cultural understanding, which is in bedded into the scheme of work giving students the opportunity to appreciate and understand diversity.
  • Develop digital skills that remove all barriers to learning and ensure students of all abilities have the opportunity to learn and achieve in a foreign language.
  • Ensure that students are able to express themselves and communicate in a foreign language.
  • Ensure that MFL lessons build on grammar skills taught in English language lessons, giving them a more in-depth knowledge of how language works.
  • Aim to meet the differing needs of students and allow them to achieve their own unique potential.
  • Ensure that students follow a sequence and planned Year 7 to 11 curriculum building on skills and knowledge to ensure best outcomes at GCSE.
  • Ensure that all students have feedback regularly, both verbally and written to ensure they can build on prior knowledge and move their learning forward, including regular assessments.
  • Create an environment which encourages students to build their confidence and develop a passion for languages.
  • Ensure students are challenged and stretched by developing their leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication skills in order to provide foundations for every aspect of school life.
