MFL Curriculum Intent

Key Stage 3

MFL serves a cultural and linguistic purpose in that it exposes students to foreign language and culture, therefore promoting global citizenship.

The curriculum sequences knowledge and skills, builds on prior learning and enables students to widen their understanding, knowledge and use of a variety of language competencies. It also serves to enrich students’ use of their mother tongue through comparison of the language and culture of another country.

Adaptive practice, particularly for SEND, should enable all learners to reach their full potential. 

The curriculum is challenging for the most able as it deals with topics requiring higher order thinking, such as the environment and global issues.

The curriculum promotes skills transferable to a wide range of careers.
