French Curriculum, Vision and Aims


At Millbrook Primary School, we believe that we must provide an opportunity for early language learning in order to prepare pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly carried out in languages other than English. Learning another language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience, laying the foundation for future language learning. We have a duty to provide our children with an understanding of other cultures and languages.


The overall aim for Languages is to enrich learning for all pupils and to ensure that teachers develop confidence and competence to teach Languages effectively. We want Languages to be embedded within the curriculum so that pupils can see links between learning languages and other areas of learning.


We have chosen French as the major modern foreign language that all children will be exposed to because the majority of the Secondary Schools that our pupils move onto offer French. French is also one of the world’s most widely spoken languages. 


Aims of the French Curriculum

Children will;


  • be exposed to the excitement of other languages, lives and cultures and compare with their home language(s), life and culture.
  • develop language skills and language learning skills.
  • develop positive attitudes to other languages and cultures.
  • be encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning.
  • use their knowledge with growing confidence and competence to understand what they have read and to express themselves in speech and writing.
