In the Modern Foreign Languages Department, we strongly believe that every child deserves the opportunity to experience a foreign language and culture to broaden their horizons. By sharing our passion for our subject, we aim to develop pupils’ skills in understanding and producing language through our enthusiasm and subject knowledge to create linguists who are confident communicators.
Miss Jones leads the Department, alongside a further two members of staff to deliver energetic, engaging lessons by friendly, knowledgeable and approachable staff. We have high standards and firmly believe that if pupils aren’t being stretched and challenged, they aren’t being pushed to meet their full potential. While lessons are firmly built on the principle of stretch and challenge, tasks are scaffolded to ensure that all pupils are able to meet the high expectations in place.
In a world which is becoming smaller and more accessible, the ability to communicate in a foreign language is more essential than ever. Thinking skills, the ability to notice, understand and apply patterns in language and resilience are key skills which we wish to foster in all our pupils. By having high expectations for pupils and providing in depth feedback to pupils for them to further develop, every pupil is capable of achieving beyond their expected progress.
