Philosophy Statement - MFL

In MFL we believe that the acquisition of languages opens the door to other cultures and experiences and in our faculty we encourage our students to develop a curiosity for the wider world. We aim to equip our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to enable them to seek adventure and embrace new horizons.

Our teachers are experts who work collaboratively and cohesively to deliver fast paced, dynamic and challenging lessons. The key knowledge that we teach and embed in terms of vocabulary, grammar, tenses and accurate sentence structure equips our students with what they need to achieve outstanding outcomes and become independent learners, prepared for further study or employment.

Using more than one language is a skill of the highest order and using this sound knowledge base, we develop the core communication skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing through challenging content and contexts. Literacy and oracy are at the heart of everything we do.

To develop skills and retain knowledge effectively our learners must be active, engaged and demonstrate commitment to their education, whilst showing resilience and resourcefulness to fulfil our unforgivably high standards.

The classroom environment is essential in the delivery of our curriculum and we aim to make sure it is purposeful, positive and supportive as we develop confidence and nurture new talents.

We recognise that languages extend outside the classroom and we value the importance of an extra-curricular programme that enables students to consolidate and extend their linguistic competence and enrich their social and cultural experiences with our visits and excursions in our aim to educate the whole child.
