Modern Foreign Languages

MFL Intent, Implementation and Impact




We want our children to leave the Belfry CEVA Primary School having developed a rich vocabulary and able to respect diversity and individuality. The teaching of Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) is an important part of this. We aim to inspire curiosity and a love of languages that pupils will strengthen and develop as they progress through our school. Pupils should be able to extend their knowledge of how language works and explore the differences between how the French and English languages are structured.




Our MFL curriculum has been designed to cover all of the objectives as set out in the National Curriculum in relation to the French language. The curriculum has been planned and sequenced as a progression, which introduce new vocabulary to pupils, allowing them the opportunity to apply, consolidate and build on this as each unit progresses.

Pupils are initially taught the ‘core’ vocabulary to ensure that they have a secure understanding of basic words and phrases. This knowledge base is then extended, allowing pupils to expand their recognition of French vocabulary, subsequently leading them to apply this to conversations and written tasks.  




MFL assessment is ongoing throughout each module to inform future planning, lesson activities and differentiation. Summative assessment is made against Learning Objectives.
