We believe that the learning of other languages provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for all children. To achieve this, we give all of our children the entitlement to learn other languages from the time they start reception at this school.

In learning other languages, children will:

  • Develop their oral communication skills.
  • Apply and extend their literacy skills.
  • Learn a range of new languages (Reception & Key Stage 1).
  • Develop knowledge of a modern foreign language to a deeper level (KS2 Spanish).
  • Learn basic phrases, applying and extending these in cross-curricular learning.
  • Explore the world beyond their own culture and develop an awareness and empathy of the multilingual and multicultural society they are living in.
