At Porthleven School we aim to offer a high-quality MFL education that has our curriculum drivers of ‘world Citizens’, ‘Resilient Individuals’, ‘Respectful Communicators’ and ‘Healthy Advocates’ at the heart of everything we do.

Our aim is to provide all our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that equips them with the skills for success both now and in the future.

At Porthleven School, we believe that learning a language helps to equip pupils to be ‘respectful communicators’ and promote understanding and appreciation for other cultures and an opportunity to develop social interaction as well as developing pupils’ communication skills. We will provide the building blocks for children to understand how languages are structured and this will develop their language understanding to aid their continued studies of foreign languages at secondary school.

In learning another language, we will build their confidence and ‘resilience’ when communicating in French as lessons introduce key words and develop and build upon vocabulary knowledge to phrases and longer sentences as the units progress. Grammatical and Phonic understanding will also develop through the years within each unit.

Pupils will progress in skills from the National Curriculum and they will communicate confidently in French in writing and through dialogue by year 6. They will develop excellent receptive (listening and reading) and
productive language skills (speaking and writing) and have a love of language learning with intercultural understanding. We aim to provide pupils with a sense of place and to widen their outlook to the world beyond in
line with our curriculum driver of ‘world citizens’.
