Modern Foreign Language (MFL)

At Sherwell Valley, we believe that it is important for all children to be given access and knowledge to not only learn a new language, but to also gain an understanding of another country and their culture. Our high-quality language education fosters pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. The teaching enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It also provides opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. French is one of the most widely spoken languages with over 320 million people speaking French across the world. We believe that our French teaching instils a love of languages, builds language skills and supports transition into secondary school.
