Our intent:

As South Enders, we believe that it is essential for all pupils to master a Modern Foreign Language (MFL), and at South End Junior this is French. The study of MFL enables children to develop the skills and confidence to consider themselves as ‘World Citizens’ who belong in a multicultural, mutually respectful world. Our view is that learning a language should not only start early, but it should be fun. The priority is that pupils are keen to participate, and as a result, make good progress.

Our French curriculum will ensure all pupils develop key language learning skills, as set out by the National Curriculum. We aim to support pupils in understanding other countries and cultures, so that they can be more open and adaptable to new experiences.  Ultimately, we wish for our pupils to have a love of languages and to become curious and respectful of the world and cultures around them.
