At Walton on Trent CE Primary School the MFL curriculum is carefully structured and planned so that there is an understanding, celebration of and respect for the diversity within our local community and the world. We want to develop pupils who are excited to explore the wider world within and outside the classroom and we realise the value of studying languages and cultures as a means of increasing pupils’ cultural capital. Our Curriculum is designed to cover all aspects of the National Curriculum, which has then been broken down into the skills, knowledge and vocabulary needed. This forms the MFL Curriculum long term plan, which ensures a structured progression building upon children’s prior learning. Planned sequences of learning will take account of prior knowledge and skills development, building upon these to prepare for the next stage in their learning journey.



MFL is taught in KS2 and French is the language focused upon. Lessons generally comprise of initial teacher input with the whole class then activities are adapted to both strengthen our children's knowledge and extend their learning and deeper thinking.



Our MFL curriculum is well thought out and planned to give children the skills, knowledge and opportunity to be challenged in their thinking and learning and prepare for the next stage of learning and into their future lives.


We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:

  • Pupil discussions and interviews about their learning,

  • An assessment of standards achieved judged against the skills and knowledge outlined in our progression map,

  • Evidence of pupils work, gathered at the end of units.


By the time our children leave Walton on Trent CE Primary, we want them to:

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.

  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.

  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

  • have an appreciation and understanding of a range of cultures.
