At Dean Field Primary School we believe that the learning of a language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. The core language taught at Dean Field Primary School in Key Stage 2 is French.
Our planning is based on a French scheme of work which covers all the components of the Programme of Study. It is the intention that all children in Key Stage 2 will access quality first teaching of French in order to prepare them for their future language learning in Key Stage 3.
We believe that it is essential for our Key Stage 2 pupils to develop an interest in learning another language that is enjoyable and stimulating as well as developing their confidence and creativity.
As a school we strongly feel that learning another language gives children a new and broader perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others which feeds into our focus on developing cultural capital throughout the school.
