Chattenden Primary School


It is our intent at Chattenden Primary School to provide all of our children with a high-quality education in Modern Foreign Languages (MFL), which develops their love of learning about other languages and cultures and helps provide them with an understanding of the world. We aim to build the children’s ‘cultural capital’ so that they have a knowledge and understanding of the richness and diversity between cultures.

All children in key stage 2 at Chattenden Primary School will be expected to achieve their full potential in their foreign language learning (French) - the ultimate aim is that our children will feel confident engaging in spoken French, develop skills in reading, listening and writing, and know how important languages will be in their future.

We hope that all pupils will develop a genuine interest and curiosity about languages, finding them enjoyable and exciting and show a desire to continue their language learning past key stage 2. Although our current MFL taught is French, we strive to provide children with opportunities to experience a range of other languages and celebrate the diversity of the spoken language.
